Update 4.8 to 4.9 or secure

portupgrade is your friend.   It's in /usr/ports/sysutils/portupgrade=20
(I think).  Run portupgrade -an and it  will tell you what's out
of date.  portupgrade -a will  upgrade everything out of date.
There's even an option to just recompile and reinstall everything
but it slips my mind at the moment.

It seems to me that I have a lot of work to do now, updating all the
packages. Is there and easy way to tell which packages to update?
