For package building we can use make.conf from tinderbox/portstrees or 
from tinderbox/builds

I need a tool capable to build several worlds automatically. With the 
possibility to use several versions of port trees.
Worlds partially would have my own options, with the rest using the 
default options.
I need this for testing purposes as well as to support several different 
roles for my hosts.

I guess that many people who administer large FreeBSD installations, 
should have similar tasks and similar problems.
