My solution I work witho about 50 freebsd servers, is 
to setup ONE server for each type (7.2,8.0) and install all the
ports I need..

Than using rsync I export
the /var/db/ports, /var/db/portsnap, /usr/ports (excluding
distfiles,packages, and work dirs)...

Than I use rsync and portsnap -PP -aBd  to sync the other servers...

to build the master server, took only one hour (in the case of
jpeg... ) .   some hours later, all the bsd servers are up to date ...
