Package build information is available on http://beefy1.isc.freebsd.org/
and http://beefy2.isc.freebsd.org/ and each package set lists the
port revision that was used.  For instance on
http://beefy1.isc.freebsd.org/build.html?mastername=10i386-default&build=2014-11-26_03h32m47s
it says svn://svn0.us-west.freebsd.org/ports/head@373435

Then you can update your ports tree to that revision with:
svn up -r 373435
