Gentoo's "emerge" ( offers a
useful combination of options to skip faulty packages when updating. If
an update fails, calling

  emerge --resume --skipfirst ...

will continue the last operation, passing over the problematic package.
If "port upgrade" could be made to offer similar functionality, that
would be helpful.
