wildcarding port select files to install ?

Is it possible to wildcard the files in a <XYZ>_select port, so that all 
the files that match the wildcard are installed when a version is 
selected ? In particular with


we would like some way to just have root_select install everything that 
gets installed in /opt/local/libexec/root<N>/bin. The only examples I 
have seen explicitly list all the files. If we have to list them all 
then fine (and maybe this is required so the 'none' option knows what to 
remove ?), I am just curious as to if there is a way or not.
