Just put the line

ports-all tag=.

in your supfile whenever you do the csup.   

Remember what the ports tree is - a skeleton for installing ports.
Doing this will just bring the tree up to date.   Then you will need
to build and install the desired ports to get the actual utilities
updated.

You might also add
 
doc-all tag=.

to the supfile to get the latest docs.
