Well, if you install portupgrade from the ports (using 'make install
clean'), it is added to the package database. This way, you can later
upgrade your portupgrade using 'portupgrade portupgrade', just like any
other package. You'll notice that portupgrade is updated every month or

Perhaps you have multiple installations of these 4 packages. If that was
that case, at least one of them IS probably the latest, but there are
lingering old versions that pkg_version thinks is outdated. You should
run "pkgdb -F" as root to fix and problems of this nature.
