What does the build system do? Does it go to each port one at a time
and do a "make package && pkg_delete -a" or similar?
If so, this would mean that the, for example, xorg-library port would be
remade many, many times.
If this is the case, perhaps there is some way this process could be
streamlined. But I can see the potential difficulties.
