This was just much-discussed in STABLE.
I've had a similar experience to yours, though many people gave ways to
make it work.
What *I* do is is just "mass upgrade" OR none--
I do the kernel/world thing for my base system,
save my current ports with pkg_info -aI,
wipe out /usr/local,
go over the packages I saved and remove the version numbers, and do
(on a copy of hte file where I saved them,
delete any that i must build from ports (eg, local patches)
Check for sanity, and then
source the file . . .
then check the script file and build from ports any that failed,
take any special actions, and
install my local mods (and build from ports those that I need to).
YMMV; lots of people swear by portupgrade.
But I've had better luck with it.
