 Re: neat, but i wish it would be standard...

From the pkg_version man page:

-c Enable commands output. Commands output includes the commands
you should type to update your installed packages to the latest
versions in the ports system. This feature does not constitute
an automated packages updating system. The output of this com-
mand must be edited, in order to avoid destroying dependencies
between installed packages.

I take the descriptions of portupgrade to mean that it will chase down all of those depending packages and change the version of the dependency in their DB entry to that of the newly upgraded port.
