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-(
