clarification on polkit upgrade

In /usr/ports/UPDATING, I see this:
Due to a recent change in sysutils/policykit, both sysutils/policykit,
and sysutils/polkit need to be rebuilt, but in a certain order. First,
upgrade sysutils/policykit to 0.9_6. Then, force a rebuild and reinstall
of sysutils/polkit. If you do not do this, applications which depend
on polkitd will fail.
It's a little unclear about the requirement for the polkit upgrade. Does
this mean that `portupgrade polkit` is enough after upgrading policy kit,
or not? If not -- what's needed? Would a deinstall/reinstall be needed?
Is `portupgrade -f` good?
I've already used `portupgrade polkit` here, and I haven't seen any
problems yet, but then I haven't restarted anything that relies on polkit
for a while either.
