I only use 'portupgrade -Ra' -- I've found that the -R helps on many
(but unfortunately not all) occasions to get portupgrade to build ports
first before the dependencies get dragged in by the port itself. This was
needed when I used -s also, but I don't bother anymore because it didn't
cover all cases apparently. I might check into this again.

Anyway, I've succesfully survived XFree, gnumeric, and mozilla upgrades this
way. I do religiously add any port build options to pkgtools.conf though, so
that I never have to do any 'interactive' portbuild.
