Maybe that should be relaxed for future ports in a situation like amd64
is now: The rebuilding is technically a joke, as it gets build from the
same sources the port now use, on the same build machine, from the same
buildd maintainer.

I can understand why one wants the rebuilding for some ports where you
cant follow how / where stuff got build, but if you can do it *I* find
it a bit heavy to rebuild everything *again*.
