Before you do this switch to svn and portupgrade.

Even this exercise can be done with svn and portupgrade.

I use portupgrade since many years. It was hard at the beginning but it
did not leave me with an machine I could not use anymore. Ok, it does
not upgrade the affected ports then but I still can use the machine.
Instruct it to make backup packages of the installed ports and you
should be real save.
