Yosemite upgrade

Is there a command line switch for "port" that would dump an
"install/select" script? For example, that would dump something like

port install python27
> port install python34
> port select python --set python34
> port install octave
> port install gcc48
> port select gcc --set gcc48

That can be used to uninstall everything/reinstall everything or even port
a list of ports to another machine.
