for your system?
I just started using portupgrade recently, and no, I would NOT let it
rip with the --all option.
I find it's most useful for the libraries and required packages that
don't need any compile-time options nor config files. Those sorta
things I install from packages anyway. So I started with a list of
stuff that required compile time control and/or configuration. "ls
/var/db/ports" and pkg-info are a good start... Then run
"portupgrade -aiP" -i asks for confirmation on each, and -P tries to
get it from packages (binary) rather than ports. Let that update all
the "background" junk.
Than go back and research and possibly manually remake & install the
primary apps (eg: apache, samba, squid, in my case.)
