Not yet. At the moment only binary update is available.
For safe update I currently use distbb for rebuilding packages
and then use pkgnih for real update like this

   cd /usr/pkgsrc; cvs up
   nih status -saq
   distbb -i
   nih update

Of course you need to configure both distbb and nih first.

See my answer to Jean-Yves Migeon.
