That shows the info I'm interested in :) Perhaps it can be improved
slightly by having the 'new version' output on the same line ? So
instead of :

    ===>>> New version available:
===>>> fetchmail-6.3.2_1
    ===>>> New version available: fetchmail-6.3.4_3

Something like :

===>>> update available:
===>>> fetchmail-6.3.2_1 update available: fetchmail-6.3.4_3

And perhaps add < > like 'pkg_version -v' :  <  needs updating (port has 2.0.3rc6)
fetchmail-6.3.2_1           <  needs updating (port has 6.3.4_3)

Also in list mode, the '===>>> ' seems unnecessary to me.

Uhmpf, not yet (apart from uglyness ;-)
What is the reasoning by the kde team ?

That would help, but only if it is possible to split a big upgrade set
into parts, so that the interactive ones can be isolated.

Here's a port of my pkgtools.conf about HOLD_PKGS :

  # HOLD_PKGS: array
  # This is a list of ports you don't want portupgrade(1) to upgrade,
  # portversion(1) to suggest upgrading, or pkgdb(1) to fix.
  # You can use wildcards ("ports glob" and "pkgname glob").
  # -f/--force with each command will override the held status.
  # To completely hide the existence of a package, put a dummy file
  # named "+IGNOREME" in the package directory.
  # cf. pkg_glob(1), ports_glob(1)
  # e.g.:
  #   HOLD_PKGS = [
  #     'bsdpan-*',
  #     'x11*/XFree86*',
  #   ]

#    'perl-*',

Is this what you needed ?
