You can use `pkg_create -b name_of_port-with_version` to create a binary
backup. If you can't get 3.2 installed, you just run pkg_add on the
resulting tbz and you're back in business.
I do this whenever I upgrade OO, Firefox, Thunderbird, or anything other
program I can't wait around for while I freshly compile.
