It would help you if you installed the ports tree and portupgrade (and cvsup
it every day via cron to keep it up-to-date). If you did that, you would bave
been able to do like I have just done:

root at bob0# portupgrade -rR firefox
[Updating the pkgdb <format:bdb1_btree> in /var/db/pkg ... - 241 packages found
--->  Upgrading 'firefox-1.0_7,1' to 'firefox-1.0.1,1' (www/firefox)


just makes life easier instead of manually adding packages..
