Ok I didn't know this. Does portmaster support it if you specify 
something like "-r libnotify -r libproxy"? Or is the only way to go to 
run portmaster -r twice for both ports? The issue is that there is 
possible a good amount of overlap between the the two commands, so your 
forced to rebuilding several things double.
