I am wondering how useful a summary log file option for portupgrade would be. 
I have in mind the ability to write to the file each time portupgrade is 
invoked.  Options starting with items such as:
S: Stats-List # of ports to be upgraded
                   # ports upgraded so far
                   # Dependencies to be upgraded
                   # Dependencies upgraded so far
L: List           Port Name 
                    Dependency Name(1)..(n)
T:Time          Run Start Time
                    PortName- Start_Time

might be useful. I do not know how easy it would be to do - someone who is 
familar with portupgrade might have something to say about this. If it is 
comparatively trivial I would personally welcome such a facility but others 
may hold a different view. - If it is not easy to do then  I guess there are 
many more important things to do.
