The man page for portmaster say this:
Alternatively you could use portmaster -a -f -D to do an ``in place''
update of your ports. If that process is interrupted for any reason you
can use portmaster -a -f -D -R to avoid rebuilding ports already rebuilt
on previous runs. However the first method (delete everything and rein-
stall) is preferred.
I'm wondering why the first method is preferred.
