It is not the right point. Bare ports system allows what I need:

make deinstall & make install && service mysql-server restart

It is not about to skip the message. The message will be shown and user 
can read it, the problem is "you are forced to interactive step", eg. 
you must press a key to continue (to restart the service, which is down)

So until there will be some hooks in portmaster or ports system to 
request service restart after upgrade (as in portupgrade), I am looking 
for some flag or whatever to do it manually without interactive step.

If there is no better way to do it, I will try to set PAGER on next 
mysql upgrade.

Thanks for the tip
