Subject:   Does running ``# portupgrade -arRp '' prompt for options or updates everything without prompts?

Dear all,

I was running FreeBSD 8.1 and am in the process of updating it
following advice in handbook:

# freebsd-update fetch
# freebsd-update install

# portupgrade -af

# freebsd-update -r 8.2-RELEASE upgrade


# freebsd-update install

Tried to do this:
# portupgrade -f ruby
# rm /var/db/pkg/pkgdb.db
# portupgrade -f ruby18-bdb
# rm /var/db/pkg/pkgdb.db /usr/ports/INDEX-*.db
# portupgrade -af

Did not work correctly[too many customizations] and Tried again

# freebsd-update install

and had nothing more to do :(

I had many packages that need to be updated so I am running :

# portupgrade -arRp

will this prompt me for customizations?

Thanks in advance/advice/suggestions.  I am taking the plunge a little
further.  Before I just installed and left it alone :( [except for a
few packages that I wanted and ran/installed via ports ], now I am
trying to learn more and setup the firewall.  I set up the simple
example setup by Polytropon and most is working.  My freebsd version
has moved to FreeBSD 8.2
