portmaster ports-mgmt files touched by this commit Manage your ports without external databases or languages
New Features:
* Add --update-if-newer which will operate on a list of ports given
  on the command line. If a port list is already up to date, it
  will be skipped.
* Tweak the way INDEX files are downloaded and installed to only
  require root privileges for the minimum possible number of actions,
  and do things in a more secure way:
  1. If necessary to download the new INDEX.bz2, as a non-root user, do
     it in a temporary directory created with mktemp
  2. If necessary to update the actual INDEX file unzip it in that same
     temporary directory
  3. Only use $PM_SU_CMD to install the file if necessary
  4. Unlink both INDEX and INDEX.bz2 in their real locations before
     installing the new versions
* Add the ability to store the portmaster.rc file in the same directory
  as the script itself.

Many improvements to the --index-only/--packages-only code, particularly
in the absence of a ports tree.
* Make the --index* options more friendly to being duplicated in the rc
  file and command line. Mixing different options will still trigger an
  error, however having the same option both places will not.
* Don't do the work of handling the INDEX file if we won't need it
  (-l, --list-origins, -e, -s)
* Reorganize the final check of $pd (PORTSDIR) to properly handle the
  various combinations
* For multiple ports and -o, only test for the origin directory if
  we are not using the INDEX. If we are, check it there instead.
* Add some code to --check-depends to explicitly handle --index-only.
  It worked before by ignoring the origin test if there was no ports
  directory, but failed if --index-only was also used.
  This is better both because it doesn't fail with --index-only, but
  also because it now uses the index to validate $origin.
* Since --check-depends now works with --index-only, update usage()

* Add some whitespace to the "Installing new +CONTENTS" message
* In --clean-packages show the path in the delete prompt for stale
  packages that are not installed like we do for ones that are
* Various internal cleanups and micro-optimizations
