in my experience, in usual kernel && userland upgrading is good,
however, everytime port upgrading have problem, whenever new -REL is
released ;; i usually do port upgrading by portupgrade(1).

at once(when 6.2-REL was released) i did upgrading port by
portupgrade(1) but i met failures on the upgrading. then i did
`pkg_delete -af` and then i did installation all packages by pkg_add(1)
cause at that time the packages were twisted each other roughly ;;

so is there any easy way to upgrade packages ??
can you please help me about this matters?
