You could use packages provided by the FreeBSD package repositories...
Although those packages will contain the standard port options, which
may differ from your installed ports if you compiled them originally
and changed any of the options screens. If you're looking to upgrade
ports with custom options applied, then rebuilding your ports from
source is your only real option.
