How to rebuild port and ALL (even if they are up to date) dependencies?
I've no idea.
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.
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.
I've read throught man page, but somehow didn't understand it clearly until your reply
$ portmaster -fR multimedia/mplayer
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)
