A good method of knowing when you have out of date packages is to use the utility `lintpkgsrc`, which can be installed from `pkgtools/lintpkgsrc`. Once it is installed use it to check installed packages for newer available versions:

    lintpkgsrc -i
    Scan Makefiles: ................
    Version mismatch: 'dummy' 5.1 vs 5.2
    Version mismatch: 'other_package' 2.5a vs 2.5b

The results are simple: outdated-package-name currently-installed-version -vs- currently-supported-version
