Listing ports that have updates available

I use to use the following to get a list of ports that needed updating:

	/usr/sbin/pkg_version -vIL=

Since updating to FreeBSD 10.0-RC3 that option is no longer available.
Presently, I am using a quick hack to get a list applications that have
updates available for them:

	portversion -v | grep -i "<"

Is there a better method available? I compile all of the software on my
machine. I don't use "pkg" to install anything.
