If you already have portupgrade installed and tried the above technique I
think you'd get an error at the end of make install saying the port is
already installed. You'd need to use either make reinstall or make
deinstall followed by make reinstall. I've been using portupgrade so long
I forget which.

I've never had any trouble upgrading portupgrade via portupgrade. Boy,
that's almost a tongue twister. :-)
If there's a change to portupgrade that would require a special upgrade
procedure, it will be noted in /usr/ports/UPDATING. Earlier today I
switched my home PC from portupgrade to portupgrade-devel to try out some
new features just added to the devel version. All that was involved was:
portupgrade -fo ports-mgmt/portupgrade-devel portupgrade
