I have been searching around for ages, for a way to update the ports.

Anyone knows a way to do this?

The ports collection like the OS are updated via cvsup. While you can use cvsup to update just the ports, it's best to update everything as some ports will depend on later versions of system libraries and applications. So you'll want to update your system with cvsup and then run a 'make world', etc, before building new apps from the ports collection.
