OpenBSD desktop related ports tree is actually in better shape than pkgsrc.
I will go as far as to claim that OpenBSD ports are in much better shape than FreeBSD ports tree. You will achieve far more by politely asking people
on ports@openbsd for patches which will enable you to compile the latest Firefox on 4.6. Sometimes people hold those patches because they are not tested enough to be merged to stable.

I personally run the latest Firefox on 4.5 stable on this particular computer.
Code:
$ uname -a
OpenBSD oko.bagdala.net 4.5 GENERIC.MP#0 i386
$ ls /var/db/pkg | grep firefox*
mozilla-firefox-3.0.14p1
