Argh. Sorry about the last (non-)message.  I meant to say:

Or rather, since (portmaster -r only accepts a single port as an
argument -- _sigh_ ) :

pkg_info -aoq | xargs -I % make -C /usr/ports/% -V USE_OPENSSL -V
PKGNAME | sed -n '/[yY][eE][sS]/{n;p;}' | xargs portmaster -f

which is thorough, but overkill. I'd stick with portupgrade or manual
'make deinstall clean install && make clean' for this task.
