You have to use cvsup to get the latest ports, therefor you need 
/net/cvsup then you need to use a cvsup file to download the ports 
here's mine:
*default tag=.
*default prefix=/usr
*default base=/var/db
*default release=cvs delete use-rel-suffix compress

ports-all release=cv/

than just run: cvsup -l 2 -g <path_to_supfile>

for more info:

and when it's done just run a make install clean again.

An other option is using net/portupgrade but I'm not a fan of that ...
