You could try ports-mgmt/portdowngrade (http://bit.ly/3bqoPU), but it
may only work on one port at a time.
If you want to downgrade your whole ports tree, then you can use csup
with a supfile that specifies a date or the RELEASE_7_1_0 tag. Have a
look at the man page section titled "CHECKOUT MODE" for the different
supfile options: http://bit.ly/3tww9G
