Here or pkg@ is fine.

This is exactly what it does. It builds the dependencies one time then
installs then builds the port needing them. On the next run if the
dependencies have not updated it reuses them. However, if a dependency
is updated then everything depending on it will be rebuilt as well to be
more safe in case a PORTREVISION bump was missed in cases of shlib bumps
or similar.
