Same story here.  On each ports update Poudriere churns couple of days,
mostly wasting time on some version of the damn webkit. Then on pkg
update a couple of insignificant ports are updated.

It's easy to fix version check in Poudriere, but I haven't decided to
dig out the corresponding lines in pkg to match them.

Will there be some option in Poudriere for this?
