To my knowledge (and the man page), this hasn't changed. But, I suspect 
there are ways around this, if you're willing to think about them. 
Since I haven't made any local changes, I'm happy with portsnap the way 
it's been working.

Right now, I'm setting up 2 dual boot computers and retiring another, at 
home. No easy job if I want to stay on good terms with my wife. Ha.
