portsnap fetch extract
portsnap update

portupgrade -arR

and since gettext got updated .. is gonna take a loooooot of time to update 
all of your ports ...

Actually .. from /usr/ports/UPDATING:

  As a result of the upgrade to gettext-0.17, the shared library version
  of libintl has changed, so you will need to rebuild all ports that
  depend on gettext:

  # portupgrade -rf gettext
  # portmaster -r gettext\*

  Given the scope and sheer number of dependent ports, it may be more
  advisable to simply blow away all existing install ports (after
  keeping any local configuration changes), and rebuilding from scratch.

Patience is a virtua ...
I guess :s
