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
*default release=cvs delete use-rel-suffix compress
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 ...
