You don't export these, so they're not actually seen by portupgrade.
It's far more convenient to place these in either /etc/make.conf or
/usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf. If you search the ports list archives for
make.conf and pkgtools.conf you'll find discussions on how to use both.
I think a number of us have such scripts, but don't publish them. I
fire mine off manually to (a) cvsup and (b) fetch packages, then check
UPDATING and only fire off the automated world and/or ports rebuilds if
there's no surprises lurking; otherwise I handle them manually.
