Subject: How to efficiently update bulk-built packages?

on top of a 'pkgsrc-200XQY' branch bulk build, I'd like to re-build
selected packages instead of re-running the whole build.

Is there a way to have the package build install prerequisite software
from *binary* packages, if available, instead of re-building stuff
all over? I suppose the bulk build works that way, but I cannot find
where it works its magic...

Thanks for any pointers,
