cvsup or portsnap, then portsdb -uUF. Work under
any circumstances, leave you with updated ports
tree and indexes.

You can also try portupgrade -aF (prefetches
needed files to speed up manual upgrade at a later
time) and portsclean -DP (removes sources and
packages which become outdated due to ports
tree updates).
