Thanks for the explanation. In principle the script works as aspected. 
As far as I can see there remain some ports like graphics/qgis without 
upgrading. QGIS defines USE_PYTHON=yes in its Makefile, but is not 
upgraded. Other examples from my installations are multimedia/xbmc, 
irc/xchat, editors/openoffice.org-3.

pkg_libchk from sysutils/bsdadminscripts identifies most (all?) of them.
