portupgrade questions - FreeBSD

Hi all, I have a mixture of ports and packages on my system. Mostly ports, but since my machine is not all that fast I decided not to compile things like OpenOffice.org for obvious reasons. I have two questions about portupgrade: 1. If I do "portupgrade -rR port" it will recompile the new version of "port" and related ports as expected but it will also try to compile up any packages that are dependent.

    Default portupgrade questions

    Hi all,

    I have a mixture of ports and packages on my system. Mostly ports, but
    since my machine is not all that fast I decided not to compile things
    like OpenOffice.org for obvious reasons.

    I have two questions about portupgrade:

    1. If I do "portupgrade -rR port" it will recompile the new version of
    "port" and related ports as expected but it will also try to compile up
    any packages that are dependent. Is there a way to tell it not to
    upgrade packages, or to upgrade them using a new package?

    2. If, when initially compiling a port, I specified options to make (eg
    "make USE_MOZILLA=firefox install clean") how do I ensure that
    portupgrade will use the same options?

    Many thanks
    Rich

    Also look at the HOLD_PKGS array in pkgtools.conf
