Re-installing a port from source

If I have an installed port and want to force re-installation from source, I can do it with 'port upgrade -s -f {portname}'. But then all of its dependencies are also re-installed from source. Why is this? I thought usually this recursive upgrade has to be forced with "--enforce-variants"? Is there a better way to do it?
