If I may chuck in my 2c (plus sales tax), every Sunday I run "port -u 
uninstall", then "port selfupdate" and "port upgrade outdated" on the 
Monday (that gives me nearly a week for any problems to show up before I 
do the "uninstall").

I've always been up to date :-)  And haven't been bitten yet...

The above is not an official recommendation; it's what I've developed over
the years, and so could probably be improved and/or corrected.
