I've started using 'portupgrade' to update several ports to the latest versions, but 
have an odd problem when it comes to certain ports.

For example:

server# pkg_version -v | grep Spam
bsdpan-Mail-SpamAssassin-2.63       <   needs updating (port has 2.63_2)

server# portupgrade bsdpan-Mail-SpamAssassin
--->  Skipping 'mail/p5-Mail-SpamAssassin' because it is held by user (specify -f to 
server# portupgrade -f bsdpan-Mail-SpamAssassin

So I use the -f flag to force, and get several errors like:

===>   p5-MIME-Base64-3.01 is already installed
      You may wish to ``make deinstall'' and install this port again
      by ``make reinstall'' to upgrade it properly.
      If you really wish to overwrite the old port of converters/p5-MIME-Base64
      without deleting it first, set the variable "FORCE_PKG_REGISTER"
      in your environment or the "make install" command line.

I can successfully "install Mail::SpamAssassin" using cpan, but it never seems to show 
up as the latest version (always seems to need upgrading when looking at pkg_version).

Are there are two different ways to install (for example) SpamAssassin (and other perl 
related ports)?

I can use cpan OR the pkg_add / portupgrade commands but not both?
