Of course it will... ;^)

But I don't think that it will break anything more badly than what  
can be fixed by a portupgrade -rf postgresql-server.. Also, the  
default postgresql version setting only kicks in when there is no  
postgresql installed. If you use prebuilt packages, you should really  
always portupgrade -rf, I guess...
