Script for maintaining ports

This script runs though the complete ports tree without stopping after a make error occurred. If you call make with any parameter in one of the directories of the ports tree in FreeBSD the run will stop if make returns with a code bigger than zero. That means, that it is in opposite to NetBSD or OpenBSD impossible to run a echo complete build with "make" in FreeBSD.

Warning The run of the script may last days but you may stop it any time.

Call the script with the parameter you want to give to make, for instance fetch, build, install, or package.
