No. The ports tree is not designed to do what you want it to do, sorry.

If it's only 3 ports, apologies if I don't see the problem here. Just 
open up 2 terminal windows, do the 'make config' step side-by-side so 
you're sure that you're using the same options on both, and you're all set.

Once you start getting to larger scale, then the cost of either setting 
up a tinderbox or rolling your own solution starts to make more sense.
