I also run that way and from my experience the odds are pretty high that something will be done out of order. I did a portupgrade -pufr glib to do the upgrade and had a few problems that I had to manually update. I understand from other comments that re-running the upgrade script makes the update go faster than a -rf glib. If you look at ports that you have installed that depend on glib, the list seems to go forever. I don't know if a -pufrR glib would have prevented the problems but that would have used even more computer time to do the update. I think the AMD 2400+ needed something like 13 hours to do the update the way I did it.
