yesterday, having to install kdeadmin, I issued the following command

	portupgrade -vnyNb -l file kdeadmin-3.5.10

Noting that "n" is negated by "y" (my mistake), the result of this command was 

	+ print/cups-base
	+ print/xdvik
	+ print/cm-super
	+ print/teTeX
	+ sysutils/kdeadmin3

but I expected portupgrade to also upgrade some packages on which kdeadmin 
depends on (required packages ?). Am I wrong somewhere ? Is the order on 
which the arguments are given relevant ?

To get the result I needed,  I then issued the following command 

	portupgrade -bRv -l file2 kdeadmin-3.5.10 

and the result, as expected, was 

	+ converters/libiconv (libiconv-1.13)
	+ audio/libogg (libogg-1.1.3,4)
	+ audio/celt (celt-0.5.2)
	+ audio/libvorbis (libvorbis-1.2.0_3,3)
	+ audio/flac (flac-1.2.1)
	+ devel/glib20 (glib-2.20.3)
	+ audio/libsndfile (libsndfile-1.0.20)
	+ audio/arts (arts-1.5.10_1,1)
