RFE: saving/restoring installed ports

Description

Would be great to be able to save a list of installed ports, with variants, to then restore with a single command on another machine. This includes subsets of ports.

Would greatly help with migration, fresh installs, etc.

This functionality is mostly complete in this external script, it just hasn't been integrated into port yet: users/jmr/restore_ports/

Probably won't be ready for integration in time for 1.9.0. The external script should be fine for now.
