make package-recursive

I would like to create a custom set of packages, so that they will
be installable to my other FreeBSD boxen.

As I understand, I have to use 'make package-recursive', but I have
some problems with it:

1. Is there a way to tell 'make package-recursive' not to _install_
    package, but only build it? It is annonying and time-consuming
    to deinstall every package after it is installed.
2. To refer to the previous point: I need to deinstall the packages
    which I 'make package-recursive'-ed before, or else some other
    package which also depends on a port which is already installed
    will not include that (already installed) package. How to change
    this behaviour? I would like that the packages, which I create
    via 'make package-recursive', _always_ include _all_ other
    dependent packages.

Thanks for your help.

P.S.: Do you guys have any scripts for building a customized package
