You missed the most important middle step:

    less /usr/ports/UPDATING

to see what critical changes have been made in the meantime that will affect 
your system.  For example, the www/apache2 port recently disabled the 
various mod_proxy modules by default.  Since my company's site depends on 
those, I would have been in a mess if I hadn't planned to handle that 
change before running the portupgrade.
