You may want to use pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkg_chk to automate that.  Use pkg_chk
-g to generate a list of all your installed packages, then remove them all
(pkg_chk -r will remove the out-dated ones), and rebuild everything from
the list with pkg_chk -a.  See the pkg_chk(8) manpage for further options.

There are several other mechanisms to "mass upgrade" pkgsrc.  Search the
pkgsrc-users or tech-pkg archives for more.
