	When there are only a small number of ports with special options
it's quite easy to just build the essential ports using make missing to get
a list of packages to install before building each port. Just don't forget
to pkg lock all the customised packages so they don't get replaced by
standard ones during an upgrade.

	With poudriere you wind up building all the dependencies locally
and so have far more locally built ports than you need. I find poudriere
works best if you do all your own package building, otherwise clashes
between local and remote built packages are hard to handle.
