Default Your favorite way of maintaining ports

Hi I am still kind of new at using FreeBSD so I was curious about everyones favorite way of updating/upgrading their ports.

I am using portsnap and portupgrade to handle everything right now and it's really easy and I have no complaints. I heard there is occasional dependency issues amongst some of the port upgraders and sometimes some work better than others.

I kind of wanted to start a poll but I couldn't find the option for it so it would be really cool for some feedback instead about your favorite port upgraders and why you like them over others.

Thanks a lot
