Portupgrade by default keeps copies in /usr/local/lib/compat/pkg
(afaik something portmaster doesn't do), you have to tell it to not
store them by passing --uninstall-shlibs. So if you portupgrade your
shared libraries will still work as expected. The downside of this is
that they're still around, but not part of the package system anymore,
so they won't get reported by portaudit - especially in the case of
webkit which by nature has security issues that get fixed on a regular
basis this might turn out quite harmful. So if you can afford the
compile time it's usually best to portupgrade -r --uninstall-shlibs or
portmaster -r in these cases.
