If you cvsuped your ports tree and you want to rebuild from ports you can do that with:

  portmaster -af

(-a will rebuild all ports will -f will force for rebuild process, asuming yes for any query)

If you want to skip keyboard input for for every port use:

  portmaster -afy -G --no-confirm


Or you can use portmanager:

  portmanager -u


There's also portupgrade:

  portupgrade -ra
or
  portupgrade -f php5             # to upgrade php5 port

Note that portupgrade let you upgrade or install packages without rebuilding and reinstalling dependent packages.
