This is actually portmaster's default behaviour.  So:

    portupgrade -R foo/bar is equivalent to portmaster foo/bar

    portupgrade -fRr foo/bar is equivalent to portmaster -fr foo/bar

There isn't actually a way to do the equivalent of

    portupgrade foo/bar

-- that is, only update the specifically named port, without updating
any dependencies as well.
