Portupgrade on the desktop computer with 1000 applications and libraries installed is waist of time. It takes far more time to upgrade the port than to build from the scratch IMHO of course
Upgrading the port using portupgrade/portmaster/et all is essentially the same as "building from scratch"... so really, your argument makes no sense in this case. These tools compile the port from source, the same as you would by "cd /usr/ports/xxx/xxx && make install clean"...
I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by fleeing the scene of the accident!
