I fear this won't be enough. There are implications of the update that
you're not considering, e.g., PORTREVISION, distinfo, modifications to
the patch files, ...

I suggest that you take a step back and read the FreeBSD's Porters
Handbook [1]. It is very well written and contains a lot of information
you cannot do without if you plan to maintain a port.

I'll be submitting a patch for the update to 8.5.13 (was released
earlier today) shortly.
