and note that portupgrade also handles differently ports depending on
whether they're being installed directly or indirectly (because of
dependency, eg via metaport), and when a package is being installed for
the first time or it's being upgraded. :(
this behaviour is rather inconsistent and confuses a lot and makes it
difficult to easily manage your compilation process and options
management, imho. :-(
