Updating Ports

Is there a "better" (I realize everything is relative) option when 
looking at portupgrade vs portmanager? From what I am reading it seems 
that portmanager will upgrade and reinstall a port and all it's 
dependencies no matter if the dependency needs it or not and portupgrade 
will only do the port specified (unless certain flags are present to do 
all depend). I am using FreeBSD 6.2-p7.

Thank you,

Peter Clark
