-u means remove archived old versions of the port that is currently being
upgraded. It says nothing about ports that aren't being upgraded at the
time, either because you are manually upgrading things or because the newer
port isn't building (as happens with e.g. pre-libc++ versions of clang on
libc++-based OS X).
