There isn't a pkg_upgrade in the base system and I'm not aware of one in
ports either but I'm open to correction. There is a python script,
pkgupgrade, developed by Michel Talon which might meet the OP's needs
<http://www.lpthe.jussieu.fr/~talon/>. Alternatively the OP could use
either portmaster or portupgrade from ports, both of these can be
forced to use packages instead of building from source by using the -P
or -PP options.
