You need to update your ports tree, which is handled separately
from the base system.

The simplest method is via portsnap(8)
or )
And then run portupgrade (or portmanager, or portmaster)
to upgrade your installed ports.

You can also use cvs to update your ports tree, but it
occasionally presents certain difficulties.
