You need the extract so that the tree is exactly matched to the
snapshot and the correct metadata is created, it's installing the
tree from disk that's not needed.

In root /etc/crontab, shedule daily updates of /var/db/portsnap :
0 3 * * * root /usr/sbin/portsnap cron

b. For every future upgrade of  gv  (using portupgrade):
b.1. ( update ports collection )
# portsnap update
b.5. do the port upgrade
# portupgrade -R gv

b.6. install the updated version of ghostview # cd /usr/ports/print/gv
# make install clean

You don't need the last step, that's what portupgrade does.

For the most part it's better to bring all you ports up-to date if you
can, rather than doing it piecemeal.
