Certainly it is the hurdle that need to be overcome.

At first PORTVERSION of all dependent ports need to be bump to rebuild packages
with new EMACS_PKGNAMESUFFIX. Based on it, for portmaster user it is properly
handled with `portmaster -a`.  But for binary packages user it isn't so easy to
handle it. Since package name of dependent ports change, `pkg` command regards
them as orphaned. And unfortunately I can't find the way to upgrading orphaned
package without once removing and reinstalling them. So following steps are
probably easiest and most reliable.

1. Execute `pkg query -a '%a %o' | awk '$1==0 {print $2}' | sort >
/tmp/package-origin-list.txt`. This command creates the list of origin of
packages manually installed by user.
2. Remove Emacs and dependent packages with `pkg remove -g 'emacs*'`.
3. Execute `pkg query -a '%a %o' | awk '$1==0 {print $2}' | sort | diff
/tmp/package-origin-list.txt -`. This command shows manually installed packages
removed by step 2.
4. Install each package showed by step 3 with `pkg install`.
