I'm not a FreeBSD expert so I cannot speak about what is considered
"best pratices" but I never restart my server after doing a port
install/reinstall/upgrade/removal. I guess the only time you will need
to do that is when your port may be a kernel module that cannot be
unloaded/reloaded without causing major problems.
