Default How do you update ports?

I know this sounds stupid and I have been using FreeBSD for almost a year but how do you update the collection @ /usr/ports ?

Note that I am not talking about upgrading INSTALLED ports, I am asking how to update the port tree available on /usr/ports

To my greater surprise, The handbook doesn't cover this topic either!?
