portsupgrade and XFree86-4.4.0

relatively new to FreeBSD I'm running a bleeding edge CVS installation with
XFree-4.4.0 binaries installed (damn radeon support is missing in version
4.3.0) over the existing 4.3.0.

What I'm asking for is what's the best way to use portupgrade -R on ports
that depend on the X stuff?

If I keep the 4.3.0 version and install the 4.4.0 version later after using
portupgrade all new compiled versions will be linked against the 4.3.0
libraries.   If I keep the 4.4.0 version portupgrade allways wants to
portupgrade to the latest 4.3.0 version.

Any suggestions?

TIA -- Peter
