Maybe you could solve this on your own, at least with ports you  

Normal ui messages in any phase could be appended to an array.

At the end of the install
If debug flag is on
   repeat secondary array
      Print array item line
   end repeat
End if

It's not going to help much other than for your own ports, but maybe a  
few test cases and the value of it, along with recursion into deps,  
could make it into core as a single command or built in feature.
