Well, when I have succeeded in doing a portupgrade by hand I think that
might be an option. I must feel confident that it works before I dare
script it by cron.

One thing confuses me, though. I refers to 'pkgdb -Uu', but the man page
for that program don't mention a -U flag. There is another program called
'portsdb' that have both a -u and a -U flag. Which one am I supposed to
use. Both?
