Portupgrade can handle the package move with a little extra help from an
entry in /usr/ports/UPDATING and the correct command argument ("-o
ORIGIN").  For instance, see this entry in the file:

20090802:
  AFFECTS: users of devel/libtool15 and devel/libltdl15
...
  portupgrade -o devel/libtool22 libtool-1.5\*
  portupgrade -o devel/libltdl22 libltdl-1.5\*
...

The committer hasn't added an entry to UPDATING yet, but it's a good
idea in this situation.

Best regards,
Greg
