That is (cd /var/db/pkg) just crude, and should not be necessary
according to portupgrade(1)...
The following command line arguments are supported:
pkgname_glob Specify one of these: a full pkgname, a pkgname
without version, a shell glob pattern in which you
can use wildcards `*', `?', and `[..]', an
extended regular expression preceded by a colon
`:', or a date range specification preceded by
either `<' or `>'. See pkg_glob(1) for details
and concrete examples.
...so if "portupgrade 'p5-*'" (keep the single quotes, but not the
double in actual usage) does not work, OP should file a problem report
