howto replace old default macports.conf with latest

The binary build thread made me realize my 2 year old default 
macports.conf is hopelessly out of date.  A quick search of FAQ, Guide, 
etc. didn't turn up any advice on how best to update it, and I expect 
that just replacing it with the latest default may not be it.  If I 
replace it, do I need to force an update of all installed ports, or 
what? I'm concerned that just replacing it will break things, and if I 
need to start from scratch, I'd rather know that up front. Am I worrying 
needlessly? Any pointers?
