It sounds like the OP wants to maintain a "private" port base, in much the 
same way that FreeBSD's ports system allows.

PS: I wish people would use the correct Subject: line when replying to a 
digest; "macports-users Digest, Vol 163, Issue 10" means stuff-all to me 
(and others), and I believe that there are MUAs that can reply to a digest 
in the correct manner.
