Just adding: expect breakage if you do not routinely check
/usr/ports/UPDATING before throwing portupgrade -a or portmaster -a at
the new ports.
The ports team has really improved the situation, but once in a while
there are still manual steps that must be taken before doing a mass
upgrade of ports.
