Your best bet is to use 'portsnap'.
It is located in base and very simple to use.
man portsnap for more information
When you first use it you can follow these steps:
sudo portsnap fetch extract
Then at subsequent occasions when you want to upgrade your ports tree
issue the following command:
sudo portsnap fetch update
Alternatively it can be run daily via the system crontab with the
portsnap cron update
Hope this helps,
