  When I do a mass pkg_comp build, often something fails.  Sunday, for 
  example, kdelibs3 wouldn't build because of a pcre problem; today, 
  htdig failed because was *very* slow and the ftp timed out.
  How do I retry the build *without* recompiling everything?

I have


in /etc/mk.conf.include, which is copied to my chroot.  I do "pkg_chk
-a -s -k" in the chroot, and just run it again later if it doesn't
complete, often after fixing a package, or a distfile fetching issue.

I realize you are talking about making an AUTO_PACKAGES list, and I
haven't tried that.  I think I only put pkg_chk in that variable.
