Hi Martin

Thank you for your answer (and everyone else who replied). This is
exactly the reason why I keep going back to portupgrade. Default
OPTIONS almost always work for me - if not I go to the ports directory
and run make config then let the --batch option of portinstall deal
with everything.

It would be extremely nice if there would be a --batch option that
would act like portupgrade.
