This is what I use:
plist=`pkg_version -ovl'<' |awk '{ print $1 }'`
for porg in $plist ; do
    cd  /usr/ports/${porg} && make config-recursive

not pretty, but it works for me. 

[Note: I use pkg_version, because neither pkg_version nor portmanager are 
bothered by package database inconsistencies. portupgrade and portversion 
both require full consistency so you may as well take advantage of 
portversion's speed.]
