What are you using to upgrade "all installed ports" that rebuilds ports that
are current?

This shouldn't happen with portupgrade or other port management tools even
if you use the "all" option.  However it is sometimes necessary to rebuild a
port if it depends upon something that is upgraded.  This is pretty much
unavoidable when applications share libraries.

You can persuade port management tools to use packages when packages are
available.
