I'm not sure there is a way to do this for ports, other than manually
checking what's been changed and whether you consider that to be a
security upgrade, then upgrading each applicable port by hand. As far as
I understand, there is only one tag for ports ("tag=."), which gets you
the "current" ports tree. I *can* guarantee that others know more about
this than I do.

Much simpler: just track RELENG_your_release to get security updates and
bug fixes and nothing else. For example, mine is RELENG_5_4 and
therefore tracks 5.4-RELEASE.
