I believe that the total stability of your system might be jeopardized.
Personally, I use 'portmanager' to force an update of all my installed
ports. After updating your ports tree, using 'portmanager -u -f -y -l'
will update everything in the correct order. If you have 'java'
installed, make sure you download the required files prior to
starting the update procedure.
