I'm after the same thing.

I did come across /usr/ports/Tools/scripts/addport and

I've posted in freebsd-ports about this issue under the subject 
"Maintaining Site Specific Ports" and have one response at the moment that 
gives a succinct set of steps to try.

Now I'm starting to think about how to create a portsnap mirror that
serves as a distfile proxy and local repository for my site's ports.
