But, I very often wish there was a convenient way to see some of those

the install, such as manually installing something or getting some
license thing handled, before I start the port install.

Sometimes I get a question in the middle of an install that I do not
know how to answer and it is an awfully inconvenient time to have
to start scrounging for information.    Having a commannd that
would display all those things and maybe some related information
or pointers to information for making an intelligent response - before
starting the make -  would be very helpful.

Do you have specific examples? Cause I can't think of anything that falls
under your description.

Perhaps he is talking about the 'make options' output, such as what is
displayed right before x11-wm/fluxbox begins to build. That is the
only type of output I can ever remember seeing before a build begins.
