-PP will fail if for some reason the package is not available on the servers. 
It is better to use -P when crossing major releases, so that any restricted 
packages that are unavailable on the buildservers are built from source.
I suspect this is the root of the problem, though they look to be available:
$ curl --silent --list-only \
	grep -E '(lib|xf)burn'

Without a log it's hard to tell what went wrong. Perhaps portupgrade found the 
package locally in $PACKAGES (/usr/ports/packages by default) and decided not 
to download it.
