portupgrade (sysutils/portupgrade) is exactly what you want.  Install it
and read the docs.  portupgrade will build the new version, remove the
old version (preserving any shared libs for compatability), update
dependency references, and install the new version.

I think you have python confused with ruby. ;)
But you don't have to build cvsup, just grab the package.  It's not
something you'll really have any need to track updates on.  If you do,
use ezm3.
