I did just that. 

But it seems to me that I have now lost (aka 'it is in a different
copy of the ports tree) all the configuration changes I did to various
ports, like enabling patches in mail/mutt or which video drivers
x11/xorg should install... Is there a way to copy those from one copy
of a ports tree to another?

Or am I just overlooking something here? ;)
