if you havent used portsnap before you'll have to portsnap fetch and 
then portsnap extract.

I usually run this to check for updates. It gets me the latest ports 
tree updates, updates the packages, tells me if there are any out of 
date because packages haven't been built yet, waits 10 seconds ( 
allowing me to hit ctrl c to abort if I choose to) and the portupgrades 
the rest.

portsnap fetch update && pkg upgrade && pkg version -vIL= && echo 
"running portupgrade -a; hit ctrl c to abort" && sleep 10 && portupgrade -a

I maintain the box w/ pkg almost exclusively, using ports only for browser flash support, nothing else. I nonetheless (try to) keep my ports tree up to date, in case I want to play around w/ compiling stuff locally for better performance, etc. I commonly (not quite daily, but several time a week) run CLI commands to check on availability of pkg/ports upgrades, see below from this A.M.:
