While using portupgrade I noticed before it deinstalls the old port it
says something like "---> Backing up the old version" and then it goes
on deinstalling and installing the new version. Where does this backup
go? I looked at the man page and it says something like /var/tmp but I
went into that directory and there is nothing in there relating to a
port back! Does portupgrade delete that backup after the successful
install of the new version?
