Portupgrade can handle the package move with a little extra help from an
entry in /usr/ports/UPDATING and the correct command argument ("-o
ORIGIN"). For instance, see this entry in the file:
AFFECTS: users of devel/libtool15 and devel/libltdl15
portupgrade -o devel/libtool22 libtool-1.5\*
portupgrade -o devel/libltdl22 libltdl-1.5\*
The committer hasn't added an entry to UPDATING yet, but it's a good
idea in this situation.
