Are you after a way to do this automatically or just a way to do it

You basically want to run portaudit -a and portupgrade each "Affected
Package".  You could probably script this quite easily:

for i in `portaudit -a | grep "Affected package:" | awk '{print $3}'`
     portupgrade $FLAGS $i

Hope this is what you were after. :)
