Yes it will. I usually use the -C flag of portupgrade when I'm
updating ports. This flag prompts you with all the options screens
before it does the update. That way you're not left with the upgrade
hanging half way through whilst it waits for you to configure the
options.

As Polytropon says you can use the --batch flag if you know that you
don't want to change the default options.
