One way to do it is to run a portupgrade -n ... to see what would
be upgraded, then compile it on the fastest system, export the
/usr/ports through nfs and then run a portupgrade -w -W ... using the
exported filesystem on the slower system...
Don't forget to sincronize both ports system with cvsup...
Just a though... ;-)
