I regularly take 6:00 flights out of PDX. You should be OK, most of the time the TSA only operate a couple of stations, with lots of extra TSA clerks standing around trying to look busy. There seems to be a rush of even more clerks around 5:00-5:30 (can't recall exactly what time) as they shamble around opening a few more checkpoints and generally trying to look busy. If one side is busy, try the other side (AB vs. CD). You can connect inside security via a 2 minute walk.
