portupgrading only certain ports

I am trying to avoid upgrading two ports: kde and X.

What are the command line options to portupgrade to accomplish this?

For instance, I tried this and it failed:
#portupgrade -a -x 'kde*' -x 'x*'

Where am I going wrong?

I've read the pertinent handbook ports section, and did man portupgrade, but still I can not get it to work. Maybe it has something to do with pkg_glob, I don't know. 

Any help appreciated.
