Don't use the ``p'' option.  Use something like ``-afrRPv''.

Force upgrade of all ports, their dependants and dependencies
(recursively), build a package of the the newly compiled port, and do it

Or just use ``-arRPv'' if you do not want to rebuild or reinstall
current ports (while still building packages).
