It searchs for the port deps make a list than order it backwards ( which is poor ) then display the list.
after that it goes afetr every individual port from that list displaying its variables  asking for changes ( and saving it to a file inside ~/.pisntall ) Then he builds the port.  and move to next. 

that way i avoid to build stuff with incorrect variants  when i build em as a dependency for something..
