One kind of setup I am running is a ports tree mount over NFS that
belongs to my account. Running portupgrade, or anything else, in
such a setting is challenging, because run as user the tools cannot
modify crucial package database data, while running as root stumbles
over NFS not forwarding root privilege (in the default setup).
Specific issue I ran into include
ports/112819: /usr/local/sbin/pkgdb:1100: [BUG] Segmentation fault
ports/112818: portupgrade -a fails with database error
ports/112816: portupgrade -f advised when /var/db/pkg not owned by user

"pkg_add -r" when ran on a FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE system still only gets
binary packages based on X.org 6.9, though.
