Is there a way to update a port that other ports depends on?

I just updated my ports tree and executed ./infrastructure/build/out-of-date to find out which ports was outdated. It turned out that tiff among other was outdated so I decided to update those.

pdflib-4.0.3 php4-pdf-4.3.5RC3 php4-gd-4.3.5RC3-no_x11 depends on tiff.

So is there an easier way to update the tiff port without first removing tiff and the ports that depends on it and then install them again?
