Also my current favorite wip/pkgmanager which uses a want list of
packages works out what's changed and updates (with make replace), installs
and removes as necessary.
None of these work well with package renames though and build
failures can still cause problems (unlike portupgrade the old shared
libraries are removed by all of these mechanisms).
