Portupgrade moved: use --origin to upgrade it?

I remember seeing some weeks ago that people had run into difficulties when 
portupgrade moved from sysutils into ports-mgmt, and one recommendation was 
to deinstall portupgrade and then

cd /usr/ports/ports-mgmt/portupgrade
make install

Possibly silly question: will I be able to avoid problems while still using 
portupgrade by simply setting the origin, ie

portupgrade -NR --origin ports-mgmt/portupgrade portupgrade
