portmaster -s option -- portmaster.rc equivalent?

Hi, Doug,

Is there a way to use portmaster.rc to globally switch on the effect of
the '-s' option in portmaster?

My best guess was to use:


but unfortunately that seems to stop portmaster doing anything for a
typical update-anything-that-needs-it run:

lucid-nonsense:/usr/src:% pkg_version -vIL=
bsdpan-Mail-SpamAssassin-CompiledRegexps-body_0-1.0  !   Comparison failed
ccache-2.4_9                        <   needs updating (index has 3.0.1)
neon29-0.29.3_1                     <   needs updating (index has 0.29.3_2)

subversion-1.6.12                   <   needs updating (index has 1.6.12_1)
lucid-nonsense:/usr/src:% sudo portmaster -a
