just in case you might be open to the notion of csup, you can do it like this
quick and dirty, no file configurations:
csup -g -L 2 -h cvsup5.us.freebsd.org /usr/share/examples/cvsup/ports-supfile
if you know your preferred cvsup server, you can name that one instead. and
of course, copying your config somewhere and making your own custom edits is
still the best way, but my example above would get you an immediate result,
with the latest up-to-date tree, sans-editing.
