If there were one, someone would have found it by now. Migration tells you
to remove and reinstall for a reason.

(And ultimately that reason is Apple changing things as it sees fit,
regardless of the effect on downstream folks like MacPorts and Homebrew.
The latter is good at ignoring those reasons and then causing
incomprehensible problems down the road... although they're getting better
about it, slowly, having repeatedly had to learn the hard way why MacPorts
does things in ways they consider "stupid".)
