I'm *somewhat* of a FreeBSD newb, but I don't think you can do multiple installs of the same port... can you? I'd like to know.

If not, then the multi-site method outlined at the Drupal site is what you want. That method uses the same files (not another instance of each file) for every Drupal site. For example, if you have 3 Drupal sites running on the same server, they all use the same index.php file. So when you do a portupgrade of Drupal, then all three of your Drupal sites will be upgraded at once.

Let me know if this doesn't make sense.
