I was idly wondering how easy/difficult it might be to maintain and access an 
historical record of port installations and upgrades on a particular system.

Something fairly comprehensive that would enable one to see when a port was 
first installed, its original version number, when it was 
upgraded/deinstalled/reinstalled and subsequent changes to the installed 
version. Maybe also time/date when a port tree was updated and which ports 
were affected by those updates.

I dont suppose there a convenient way of obtaining this information by 
default? If not is there a port which would do it?
