Aren't the two of you talking at cross-purposes here?  It seems to me
that the OP is looking for a way to update a port to a distfile
created from a snapshot of project sources -- not in the sense of
sources that are recreated each and every build by fetching a snapshot
from a remote VCS, but an actual tarball that has been audited,
checksummed, and uploaded to a project server.  Surely this is needed
for a few ports, including some now in the tree?
