In case you did already remove all installed ports, you
need to install them (portinstall command). You can do
a port upgrade only for ports that are installed, as the
system doesn't keep a "which ports have been installed
before they got removed" database automatically.

You need to use portmaster, the "make install" framework
or pkg_add -r to install the ports you want to have on
your system.

I hope I did understand your statement correctly. :-)
