when building ports, my machine crawls not because of the cpu, but because of the disk i/o. i would like to minimize the disk i/o by specifying a ram disk as the work dir.

Summary: allow workdir to be specified as optionAllow building on a RAM disk or other secondary disk

This message from Gregory Seidman shows how you can do that.

I don't think we need any changes to MacPorts base for this. However it would be great if someone wanted to turn Greg's post into a wiki/howto page.
