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

The simplest method is via portsnap(8)
(qv http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?query=3Dportsnap&apropos=3D0&sektion=
=3D0&manpath=3DFreeBSD+8.2-RELEASE&format=3Dhtml
or http://tinyurl.com/3cr6ktw )
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.
