Portupgrade does not force upgrades by package if the packages needs to
be remotely (i.e. from the freebsd mirrors) fetched and the installed package
has the same version. Running portupgrade again after the package has been fetched succeeds.
Find a package on a remote server which has the same version as the locally
installed port and is not available in /usr/ports/packages yet.
Try to portupgrade it with portupgrade -PPf. portupgrade will fail to force
the upgrade, but will fetch the package. Now run portupgrade -PPf again on the
same port, the upgrade will succeed.
