[nycbug-talk] upgrading custom packages on freebsd

Hi all,

When I first setup the environment I'm working on, I built custom 
packages.  I had a build server, and would do "make package", and then 
install those packages across all the boxes.

I'm at a point now where I want to upgrade most packages, as it's been a 
while.  The way I'm thinking of doing it is:

- `portupgrade -a` on the build server
- make package in each port
- remove old packages on the old boxes and upgrade to new ones, unless 
there's an easy way to tell portupgrade to "upgrade all packages using 
/usr/ports/packages/All".  Is there?

Thanks for anyone's advice!
