ive been using 'portupgrade -apP' on my systems lately (since i keep a central 
repository of packages i build for my systems; a good bulk of them are used 
across most/all of them).  

in situations where new packages are built from ports (ie, when the package 
in /usr/ports/packages/All is no longer the most current), the -p is going 
back and repackaging lots of packages that already exist.  is there a way to 
tell portupgrade not to repackage things that are not new versions?
