I used to use cvsup -g -L 2 ports-supfile and then portupgrade -Rrnvi
<portname> on various ports to see what they'd do.  Then I'd use
portupgrade <portname> or even portupgrade -Rr <portname>, depending
on the circumstances.

I recently learned about portsnap.  I played with it a little so far.
Looks fantastic.

Hope that helps,

P.S. - All the above is on FreeBSD
