I have my own ports tree too and I am using marcusmerge.sh to do the job.  
At the every time if I want to update offical ports tree, so I just run  
'marcusmerge.sh -U' (to unmerge), 'cvsup[..]', and then 'marcusmerge.sh -m  
ports-mezz'[1] to merge my own ports tree into offical. It works very well.

[1] By default, the -m will checking if directory exists then merge it. If  
directory doesn't exist, then it will be looking for module in MC CVS.
