It is only the beginning. You also have to download the distfiles for 
each of the ports that you want to update. You could also download the 
packages and bypass building the ports. 

I don't think the packages will be as uptodate as the port structure 
that you would download. They require hours to build. Where as, the 
port structure can be tarballed fairly quickly every day.
