System: Clean ALL ports but no dependencies

(last edit: 2004-12-16) When cleaning the ENTIRE ports collection like this: root@server#cd /usr/ports root@server#make clean the process will 'loop' on dependencies because half of the ports (if not all) use things like gettext en therefore the dependencies get cleaned a thousand or more times.] You can prevent this by adding 'NOCLEANDEPENDS=yes' to your make clean command.
