Good point.  I recommend this in almost all situations as the automatic rebuild is almost always the wrong thing to do
and hides linking problems that need to be addressed otherwise.

To be more explicit, change

revupgrade_mode rebuild


revupgrade_mode report

in /opt/local/etc/macports/macports.conf

You will get the report of broken files if they exist and then you can decide if you want to rebuild or not on your own.
