The ports tree isn't branched; just get HEAD (aka ".") and you'll get the most
current version with the most recent security updates. You might want to
install security/portaudit, however, which is a very useful tool.
Yes, doing a "portupgrade -ai" is a fine method for updating the ports once you
have finished cvsup'ing.
