It is better to use poudriere (installed from ports) where you can
create the list of ports you want to build (why would you want to build
everything?), then you run poudrier bulk and on target system disable
official FreeBSD repository and add yours.
I am using poudriere for a long time to build all packages needed on our
servers. It is very helpful tool.
