That's not strictly accurate. During a given run portmaster keeps an
internal list of what ports are up to date in a variable. The files
you mentioned are generated during the use of the -r or the -f options
so that if you have to interrupt that process you can go back with the
-R option and avoid redoing work you've already done.
