You need both. cvsup(1) will synchronise the ports tree with the latest version -- that's all the Makefiles and stuff that are used to build ports, not the actual ports themselves. portupgrade(1) uses the files downloaded by cvsup(1) to build and install ports or to update any previously installed ports where there is a newer version available.
