do you want to upgrade all upgradable ports on your machine ?

i use portmanager -u   and/or   portupgrade -arvy

i've started using portmanager since i've read good things about it many
times, and it does indeed handle dependencies better than portupgrade

however, if portmanager ends up with errors i use e.g. portupgrade -rf
postgrey* to correct those errors

i like the combination of both
