pkg is able to make packages upgrade by itself. I think the good way
to update with packages is "pkg updgrade" then portupgrade to build the
ports without packages avalaible.

Anyway I had many problems with portupgrade and pkg (basically It was
not able to build its database because of inconsistency in
ports dependencies), portmaster with pkgng patch looks better.
