Likely they do; Mozilla, Seamonkey, Opera, and Firefox. (all flagged in my 
security audit) Was hoping to do them all at once.

Yeah, running SMP, so cpu is not a problem. But bumping into deps may very 
well  be. I have synched-up my ports tree, and have also done portupgrade -Fa 
so all the sources, as well as any deps are already here. However, I fear 
several packages may need the same dep, and all try to upgrade it at the same 
time.... would make a mess!
 
I don't think portupgrade is smart enough to detect multiple upgrades, at 
least I have not seen any reference in the docs.
 
Thanks! guess I will just so one a night, some of these are pretty BIG.
