what you did only saves (keeps) the *first* package you  enter  in the 
pkg_add command (only 1 package). not sure how well -R works, but you 
would be better off with portupgrade -NPP x11/xorg etc.. to use packages or
portupgrade -Np x11/kde4 or portmaster -gu x11/kde4 to use ports and 
keep packages.
