Updating multiple ports with portmaster

 I have a questions about the use of portmaster when upgrading multiple 
 ports and how to correctly use wildcards.

 For example, I have this from pkg_version:

 p5-Digest-SHA-5.50                  <   needs updating (port has 5.61)
 p5-IO-Socket-SSL-1.38               <   needs updating (port has 1.39)
 p5-IPC-Cmd-0.68                     <   needs updating (port has 0.70)
 p5-Math-BigInt-1.99                 <   needs updating (port has 1.993)
 p5-Module-Build-0.3607_1            <   needs updating (port has 
 p5-Module-CoreList-2.42             <   needs updating (port has 2.45)
 p5-Module-Load-Conditional-0.38     <   needs updating (port has 0.44)
 p5-Params-Check-0.26_1              <   needs updating (port has 0.28)
 p5-Test-Harness-3.22                <   needs updating (port has 3.23)
 p5-URI-1.56                         <   needs updating (port has 1.58)

 When I was using portupgrade, I could type...

 portupgrade p5-*

 ...and it would upgrade only the ports that needed upgrading and 
 dependancies.  But if I try...

 portmaster p5-*

 ...it wants to upgrade and reinstall every port that I have installed 
 that begins with p5-*

 Is there a way to get portmaster to behave like portupgrade did and 
 only upgrade what needs to be upgraded?

 Thanks, Ron
