Managing ports on multiple jails

I have multiple jails using ezjails, approx 20.

I'm currently doing
portsnap fetch update
ezjail-admin update -P

then doing a portmaster -Bad on each jail, but its pretty time
consuming, esp when you have to peridically come back and check if its
done and do the next one.

I've tried building packages in one jail and sharing it to all the
other jails. make package-recursive
But sometimes a particular package won't install properly, then I'll
end up building from source again.

Does anyone have any other ways to quickly upgrade multiple jails or
even multiple boxes?
