Instead of running portsnap you can just use portshaker: something like
`portshaker -UIM' from the top of my head. I don't have access to a
system with portshaker on it atm (man portshaker is your friend). But
the idea is that you can tell portshaker to fetch updates for all trees
(including the official FreeBSD ports), and merge the trees. In any case
`man portshaker' is your friend.
