The -o option to portupgrade might do it, but it won't find the
origin of the bsdpan- package so it may not know how to deal with it.
Also, some module installed with cpan/bsdpan use slightly different
names so that causes problems and there are a fair number of cpan
modules without FreeBSD ports.
I find portupgrade *so* useful for managing our software that I spend
the time to make the ports for any cpan package I need that is not
already a port.
I have banished cpan from being used on any production server except
the one we use for creating the new ports :-)
