step 1 is to pkg_add -r portupgrade
step 2 is to run pkgdb -F
(this might require answering a lot of questions, then again maybe not. It depends on how mismatched the packages on your system are when you run it.)
step 3 is to run portinstall -P gnome
step 4 is to run portinstall -P gnumeric
step 5 is to run portinstall -P AbiWord
