[nycbug-talk] freebsd 5.3 same ports multiple machines

I haven't found the answer probably because I'm not searching for the
right terms. And cause I am a newbie :)
I have several laptops which don't have ethernet adaptors which I am
using as video playback devices, basically I need mplayer which depends
on about a dozen ports. And there are some libraries I have to get
built first or it seems that mplayer doesn't build for them.
So I built mplayer on a box which is connected to the net, I got the
correct distfiles downloaded, etc. made a tarball of /usr/ports burned
that onto a CD and untarred on the first laptop. Problem is that when I
went into the freshly untarred ports tree, it considered everything
already installed. ( I banged around with some make cleans and finally
got everything that I needed installed, but was thinking there is
probably a solution for this)
Anyway, so what I have is a bunch of ports working on machine one and I
want to have the same ports installed on machine two. I am guessing
there is an elegant BSDish solution to do this but I can't find it.
portupgrade doesn't seem to be the right tool, cause it looks to cvsup
the ports tree first, but perhaps I haven't looked a portupgrade enough.
Thanks for any pointers,
