OK, after reading this tutorial, here is MY new WAY.
/usr/local/bin/cvsup -g -L 2 /root/cvsup/ports-supfile
portversion -l "<" [to see if any ports will be upgraded]
portupgrade -arR [so dependencies will be installed, if necessary]
[NB. If ever asked to run pkgdb -F, do it]
Taking into consideration other issues or options pointed out on the
web tutorial, will this be a good strategy from now on for performing
good port upgrades?
