	I upgrade the ports tree every night.
	Building the ports depends on the number and identity.  Small
items and security fixes get done daily; monsters like Mozilla and
its kindred every couple of days; OpenOffice ... urk. 
	(NB: I have a 7 mbit broadband connection and the build machine
has periods when it's not doing much of anything else.)
