 what's wrong with pkg_version -c?

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.

the trick of course, is

pkg_version -c > update,

not simple pkg_version > update.

portupgrade -R only upgrades the packages you _need_ upgrade, where with pkg_version -c you would have a lot of editing to do.

note the difference between -R and -r:

--recursive Do with all those packages depending on the given
packages as well.

--upward-recursive Do with all those packages required by the given
packages as well. (When specified with -F, fetch
recursively, including the brand new, uninstalled
ports that an upgraded port requires)
