When did you try it last? There have been lots of improvements and you 
can set certain flags up to always be in effect if you need to.

portmaster -L | grep version

tells me everything that needs to be updated and the -e switch removes 
ports i no longer want around, but then again, so does make deinstall 
clean. What does portversion do thats so special? same with pkg_deinstall
