Am I right in thinking you can pkg_add packagex, then make install clean it from source, and use the package whilst your port is compiling? This works on Gentoo.

You can in first place do a "pkg_add -rv $package" en then do a "portsnap fetch ; portsnap update ; portupgrade -a". The "old" version works fine untill portupgrade is ready with the new one.

You forgot the:"portsnap extract"?

You do 'portsnap extract' only the first time to extract the whole ports tree. After that it's update.
