I cannot remember the last time I did this.
1) I update regularly, at least twice a week. (Exception:
OpenOffice.) It usually takes an hour or so.
2) portupgrade is not bullet-proof. More than once over the
years it's exploded over a single port, with consequences for the
pkgdb. Clean-up was sometimes trivial ... and sometimes horrendous.
As a result, even when I've checked for known issues I am
unintersted in a (supposedly) "fire and forget" process involving
(in one case) 600+ ports.
