To update your current set of packages I would first recommend
removing the current set of installed packages via 'pkg_delete -a`
For a nice desktop setup I've been running something along the lines
of these commands.
pkg_add -r XFree86
pkg_add -r kde
pkg_add -r gnome2
pkg_add -r mozilla
pkg_add -r firefox
pkg_add -r thunderbird

If you don't have the time or the bandwidth to download the packages
that you would like to have you can pick up a full featured CDROM set
of DragonFly from
The 4 CDROM set includes all the packages that you would need for a
desktop or a server setup.

I took a look at your site and see some packages for programs that do 
not currently build with the current ports/dfports system, eg. 
libgtop2.   Were these packages built with a DragonFly system?  If so, 
will you be sharing your patches?
