Can "make package-install" call "pkg_add -u"?

I often work in an updated tree without having updated all installed packages. Often, I get this annoying failure mode when running „make package-install“:

===> Installing binary package of go-1.7.1
pkg_add: A different version of go-1.7.1 is already installed: go-1.7
pkg_add: 1 package addition failed
*** Error code 1

Would it be possible to have „make package-install“ just use the -u option to pkg_add? This would do the right thing in this case. The param is harmless if no older version is installed.

Is there some setting I can tweak to get that?

I know about the implications of this (plus possible breakage).
