When did you try it last? There have been lots of improvements and you
can set certain flags up to always be in effect if you need to.
portmaster -L | grep version
tells me everything that needs to be updated and the -e switch removes
ports i no longer want around, but then again, so does make deinstall
clean. What does portversion do thats so special? same with pkg_deinstall
