They should not stop.

I have two (in fact, 5) reference hosts, whose only reason of existence
is: csup the ports tree, build all updated stuff.

The script that does this uses:

  portupgrade -arR -m BATCH=yes

and it worked the last few years.

I'm trying to use portmaster on one of the hosts, with:

  portmaster --no-confirm --no-term-title --index --no-index-fetch -a

If it waits for some input, I'm unhappy 8-(
