'BATCH=1' makes portupgrade not display 'make config' dialogs. '-akO' means 'upgrade everything you can and don't stop on errors'.
thanks, good point, but I use portmaster instead of portupgrade on one of my computer. There is an equivalent for portupgrade -akO in portmaster?

What I used to do on my workstation is this:

portsnap fetch update
BATCH=1 portupgrade -akO

But will this also install the userland sources that he needs?

===>>> Port directory: /usr/ports/sysutils/fusefs-kmod
===>>> This port is marked IGNORE
===>>> requires the userland sources to be installed. Set SRC_BASE if it is not in /usr/src

Well, if the port requires kernel sources, portupgrade or the ports system cannot do much. It's the responsibility of the user to provide it.
