Well, yes, BUT they seem to be redundant (that's why I asked).

# portmaster -L --index-only | egrep '(ew|ort) version|total install'
	===>>> New version available: smartmontools-5.43_1
===>>> 618 total installed ports
	===>>> 1 has a new version available

# portmaster -L --index | egrep '(ew|ort) version|total install'
	===>>> New version available: smartmontools-5.43_1
===>>> 618 total installed ports
	===>>> 1 has a new version available
