Does it need to be updated?  Remember, after installation it does not 
matter whether it was installed from a port or a package, it's all the 
same.  If the package was the latest version, portmaster will not update 
it.

Possibly the package been locked to prevent changes.

Mixing pre-built packages with building from ports can be complicated, 
and it is usually easier to stick with one method.

Sorry to ask the obvious, but does portmaster state that there are
updates available for these ports? If the version you've installed from
the package repository is the same or newer than that in the ports tree,
then of course running `portmaster -a` won't do anything. If portmaster
says updates are available but they're not building, then there should
be accompanying error messages.
