Personally, I use -R.  Occasionally, I've had problems with dependent packages
_requiring_ a rebuild after rebuilding a library.  I've _never_ had trouble
with a library having trouble after building dependent packages.

When I'm upgrading a system, I start with "portupgrade -an | grep '\+'",
then I pick a good place to start and use "portupgrade -Rn <pkg_name>" to
see what's going to happen before actually pulling the trigger.
