The Handbook is your friend:

Once you've got the ports directory tree updated, install the
sysutils/portupgrade port, build a new index (cd /usr/ports and type
'make index': it will take some time to finish) and run

    # portupgrade -Nia

This should update all of your installed ports in the correct
dependencies first order.  You may need several iterations at doing
that if your installed ports are in a real mess.
