Upgrading ports, rather than uninstalling and reinstalling, can work. It's how I've done it, because when I started out with the first Yosemite beta months ago, half the ports I had installed couldn't build under Yosemite, and I didn't want to uninstall them and be unable to reinstall them. Looking at which ports in "port outdated" mentioned darwin 13 was also a good way for me to remind myself what ports I still needed to work on. Fortunately most of them have been fixed already by now.
