You want to be careful how you proceed. When you update your ports tree you 
may then find that a lot of what is currently installed needs updating. This 
can sometimes be a quagmire. But you may want to consider taking care of 
*that* first, then proceed to the install of new things. Sometimes trying to 
do both at the same time together sets the stage for a cyclical dependency-
type of disaster. Split it into two operations may make it easier to recover 
a small problem before it becomes nightmarish.  :-)

Just my $.02 - YMMV
