They are required to build and run portupgrade.  If you do a 'make search
name=portupgrade' from /usr/ports, it will list all the dependencies.

That's because portupgrade did all the work :)  If you had run
portmanager before running portupgrade, you would have seen something
similar - portmanager taking two hours and portupgrade taking almost
no time at all.
