 what's wrong with pkg_version -c?
Author: Daniel

I've read about portupgrade on some other occations too. I have been using another alternative for a long time.

This does the trick for me:

pkg_version > update
vi update #edit as necessary, for ports you don't want to upgrade, etc

chmod 700 update; ./update

Am I missing something? This has been a feature of pkg_version for quite some releases.
