After running cvsup, you'll have a collection of Makefiles, patches
etc. under /usr/ports all set up to download the source and build the
latest versions of any software you want to install.  Running cvsup is
just the preliminary to the whole process of updating any ports that
are out of date.  If you've installed portupgrade(1)
[ports/sysutils/portupgrade] bringing all your installed ports up to
date pretty much boils down to:

    cvsup -g -L 2 ports-supfile
    portsdb -Uu
    pkgdb -Fvu
    portupgrade -rRNia

[the last two commands are interactive as shown: they'll prompt you to
confirm any actions that modify your system]
