I dont have much experience with csh, but with bash have you tried

$ portupgrade -aF > /dev/null 2>&1 &

give it a try, it works for other commands...probably could work for this one too...:^)

prompt# nohup portupgrade -aF &
[1] 44167

prompt# j
[1]  + 44167 Suspended (tty output)        portupgrade -aF

SIGHUP signals??
