Assuming ports.cvs is your supfile and it's OK, not really.
You're probably best off using:
# cvsup -L 2 ports.cvs
to get some logging.
If you haven't installed portupgrade then do so. There's a good

where Henrik's question about finding out what ports need upgrading is
also answered; you might want to upgrade yours too.
