The ports system works very easily, very similar to apt-get.  However,
right now, they don't have security updates for ports in -stable.

If you run -current and want to update a port, AFAIK, you have to
upgrade to the next snapshot for the whole system.  For me, that's a lot
of bandwidth on dialup.
