    portmaster -r [name of port]

    I'm guessing that the man pages for portupgrade has some more detailed information for it's switches

    Ports it depends on, or ports that depend on it?

    portmaster and portupgrade both have -f flags, and -r and -R usually define upstream or downstream dependencies to include. Though they're very different between portmaster and portupgrade.

    portupgrade(1), portmaster(8).

    IIRC:

    rebuild a port and ports it depends on = portupgrade -Rf <portglob> / portmaster -f <portglob>

    rebuild a port and ports depending on it: portupgrade -rf <portglob> / portmaster -rf <portglob>

    seams $ portmaster -fR multimedia/mplayer did the trick.

    Can portmaster rebuild all ports with their saved configurations? I mean, when i did system-wide upgrade it always popped out blue dialogs for port configuration.

    As far as I know, a rebuild will only prompt for configuration options when either --force-config is specified or when there are changed options which require a selection to be performed. There's also the -G flag though.

    I just finished rebuilding mplayer (and all it's dependencies)

    portmaster never asked me to configure any of ports (since i've done this earlier)
