autoconf and automake

I'm having trouble with the latest advice in ports/UPDATING:
AUTHOR: autotools at FreeBSD.org
Another stage in the autotools cleanup that reduces tree churn whilst
updating components, a number of ports have now moved to non-versioned
locations since there is now only the concept of legacy and current
# portmaster -o devel/autoconf devel/autoconf268
# portmaster -o devel/automake devel/automake111
# portmaster -o devel/libtool devel/libtool22
# portmaster -o devel/libltdl devel/libltdl22
substitute 'portupgrade' for 'portmaster' accordingly if that's your
your upgrade tool of choice.
If I invoke portupgrade -o devel/autoconf devel/autoconf268
portupgrade doesn't appear to do anything:
portupgrade -o devel/autoconf devel/autoconf268

And pkg_info says there's still an old version of autoconf:
autoconf-2.13.000227_6 Automatically configure source code on many Un*x
autoconf-2.68 Automatically configure source code on many Un*x platforms
autoconf-wrapper-20101119 Wrapper script for GNU autoconf
Can anyone help me? I'm thinking that I'm trying to upgrade all ports that
depend on autoconf-2.13.000227_6 to depend on autoconf268.
