I didn't know that.

Personally, I know which of the ports I use require which other
ports, so I manually "sudo port -ncuf upgrade foo" for each port, in
the correct order (e.g., if apr, apr-util and subversion all need
updating, do them in that order).
I don't know if there's a better more-automated way.
