Tell portupgrade to use passive ftp

On my perimeter firewall, I default deny outbound traffic.  This cuts  
off fetching using active FTP.  Is there some way that I can tell  
portupgrade to pass the -p flag to fetch?

I know that I can temporarily change my firewall rules, but I think  
that it would be a cleaner solution to just tell portupgrade to not  
use active mode FTP.  (Or maybe fetch itself when it fails with  
active mode ftp should try again with passive).
