portupgrade dialogs...

when I run portupgrade to get my server up to date (CVS of 
4.9-Release),  everything works fine and smooth, until any of the ports 
pops up an dialog and asks me what I want to compile in (e.g. cups 
asking me about what drivers I want to install and so on).

Now my question: Is there a way to work arround this? As my server does 
not have a very decent CPU updating takes quite some time, and I do not 
sit in front of my terminal all the time :-) and due to the dialogs 
waiting for my input the update is running for three days by now...

So any suggestions?

thx in advance
