It seems like a lot of people keep their ports regularly up to date by just
running portupgrade -a. I've seen it online, and in books. 

As /usr/ports/UPDATING is rather large, it seems impossible to look for
potential issues with every package that you're going to upgrade. So, is
running portupgrade -a a good idea, as you likely haven't checked for issues
for your system?

Otherwise, the ports change so fast that if you don't regularly update, when
you do go to upgrade you may find yourself in a difficult position to do so.
