Thanks Kent, but it didn't work. Setting it made it search in I eventually found 
that it's PKG_SITES that needs setting (and you don't include 'All') 
after trawling through pkgtools.conf. Unfortunately it's not documented 
in the portupgrade manpage.

Anyway, I've got it all working now - thanks for the push in the right 
direction, and thanks Phil too for the input.
