You would need to add -R to upgrade packages required by the one you're
upgrading.  -r will upgrade packages depending on the one you're
upgrading.  They're not the default because most of the time they're
not necessary, and can really slow down a build if there's a big piece
of software like mozilla, jdk, or openoffice somewhere in the
dependency chain.
