When upgrading a package say vsftpd, I used port install. After newer version is installed, I have both newer and older versions being listed if run pkg_info. The newer version works fine.
You can use portupgrade instead, which should deinstall the old version, then install the new one. You can't install the new one before the old one, so there will be a brief period of time between the make deinstall and make reinstall that it may not be available. Also keep in mind, if you are upgrading something like mysql, you should update pkgtools.conf to restart it afterwards to minimize down time (and so you don't have to remember to restart it). You can look for the AFTERINSTALL section in pkgtools.conf for how to do this.
