That's excellent news! Now I can use -D during upgrades to avoid
pausing between port builds, and run this later to manually clean up the
I'm a bit paranoid about automatically deleting them -- had one too many
times when port[master|upgrade|foo] got confused by slave ports or weird
file names and deleted hard to replace* distfiles.
(* Stuff like the openoffice source that is huge, or java source that you
have to fetch manually)
Thanks again for your work on portmaster!
