Other people have mentioned what needs to be done in future(reading 
/usr/*/UPDATING and portupgrade syntax). For now, you're probably going 
to need to get your hands dirty: go to OpenSSL in the ports tree, do a 
"make install" there, try again with Ruby... Basically, try to make the 
new version of portupgrade, and whenever it complains about a different 
port, go and fix it; you may need to do more than a few "make deinstall 
&& make reinstall" to deal with version changes.

Also, you could try pkg_add -r [portname] for some of these to cut down 
compile time at least until you can get portupgrade back.
