This is simple. As someone has pointed out before, you need cvsup the 
ports tree then a portupgrade. Yes, after the cvsup and portupgrade you 
will have 1.0.1

Also note, that even after a cvsup and portupgrade, you will not always 
have the latest, greatest version of a port. It all depends on the 
maintainer of the port and how much time they have to do the work etc, 
etc, etc.

Best regards,

No matter how large the work space, if two projects
must be done at the same time they will require the
same part of the work space.
