An upgrade of the base system Should Not(Tm) affect installed ports
under normal conditions.

I am unfamiliar with automated port utilities.  What happens if you do
the following?:
   cd /usr/ports/editors/vim; make deinstall distclean; make install clean

Don't confuse ports and packages.  They are two different ways to
install third-party software (until they are installed -- then
everything is a package).
