Default Upgrading /usr/ports

Can anyone tell me how to renew my /usr/ports offline ?

portaudit tells me some packages are out-of-date. My FreeBSD box is on dial-up, so ...

- I downloaded ports.tgz from ftp.freebsd.org on another machine.
- mv'ed the old /usr/ports to .../portsOLD
- untarred the ports.tgz

But I get the same old ports ! Worse, when I try to install a port I'm told that particular version's gone.

Thanks for any help.
