I've just switched to the new version.  I haven't given it a thorough 
workout yet as my system is up to date at the moment.

Have you ever considered adding an option to portinstall and portupgrade 
to automatically run a make config-recursive for each port that's being 
installed or upgraded before starting the build?  I currently use a simple 
script to do so before running portupgrade, and just change to the 
appropriate port directory and run make config-recursive manually before 
using portinstall to install ports.  But, it would be nice to have that 
functionality built in.
