You're probably better off using 'tc addPort' and tinderd. This will
make sure only one port is build at a time. A port that was built as a
dependency will not be build again the next time it is a dependency,
then its package will be used. It will be build again however when you
schedule it explicitly. Those ports will only be build twice, so it
might not be that big of a problem, but you might want to do some more
preprocessing then just the above find. You might want to have a look
at how pointyhat does this (/usr/ports/Tools/portbuild/), or even set up
your own version of those scripts. Beware, documentation here is not
