If you installed them thru ports use 'cvsup' and 'portupgrade'. They are both apps that are in the port tree. A simple 'whereis cvsup' or 'whereis portupgrade' will show you under what category they are. To use them either checkout the man pages or the FBSD handbook for an in-depth explanation of how each work. If you didn't use the ports system to install them then to upgrade you have to remove the app, download the newer version and reinstall. If you used the pkg_add method then I believe you can also use portupgrade but I'd check into that, I've used pkg_add once, maybe twice before. GL.

cvsup-without-gui is in /usr/ports/net - and portupgrade is in /usr/ports/sysutils.

Have a look at this tutorial, it's how I got the hang of the ports system:
