Would a feature request make sense? Having build time and open tickets (defect/platform) when running `port outdated` would spare quite a few headaches. As of now, I have to pin compilers locally to avoid rebuilding for every release bump and review the list of outdated ports and eventually query for open tickets. Getting more information from ports would certainly help automatize updating.
