just redirect the outout if pkg_info into a file and edit it is my way of doing things like this.

I basically create with this a script which deletes all ports I do not want to pull through an upgrade from X.y to Y.x.

It will take some time to edit it but I did not find a better way excpet of pkg_delete -a which deletes all ports.

This can be dangerous if you have only remote access to the machine depending on how you access the machine.
