FYI: here is the man page for pkg_update:
http://www.gsp.com/cgi-bin/man.cgi?section=1&topic=pkg_update

I know this isnt a tutorial about pkg_update, its a
start.  On a side note, there are several good
articles at www.onlamp.com/bsd about using
portupgrade.  And you can use packages with
portupgrade by using the "-P" option.  Just in case,
here are the articles in question:

Man page:
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=portupgrade&sektion=1&apropos=0&manpath=FreeBSD+5.2-RELEASE+and+Ports

Portupgrade:

Cleaning and Customizing your Ports:

FYI: per the man page "Please read this manual page
carefully and understand what you are doing with
portupgrade."

Hope this helps,
Pete
