You might want to check out a thread in freebsd-questions:

Try this:


# Get list of out-of-date ports
# This may take some time

plist=`pkg_version -ovl'<' |awk '{ print $1 }'`

# allow each out-of-date port to update it's config, and that of any new
# dependencies (dialog only runs when something has changed)

for port in $plist ; do
    cd  /usr/ports/${porg} && make config-recursive

I've modified this slightly to be:



echo Determing dependencies for $origin...
# You can change the target from 'all-depends-list' to:
#       {build<para>ckage,run}-depends-list
path_list=$(cd ${PREFIX}/$origin; make all-depends-list)

for path in $path_list ; do
	echo Configuring $(echo $path|sed "s#${PREFIX}/##")...
	( cd $path ; sudo make config-recursive )
