	As far as I can tell, for 90-95% of tasks they're
indistinguishable.  If (generic) you have special needs - ugdating a
large user base, extensive local patches, or a non-standard set of 
dependencies - then you're going to have to do the research and test
them for yourself.
	And instructions for using portmaster are increasingly common
in /usr/ports/UPDATING.
