No, you can just compile it yourself using ports (although the ports
collection also doesn't support 5.3 any longer, most things will still
work). Using packages with pkg_add -r is an *alternative* to
compiling yourself using the ports system, and there's no point in
updating your ports collection if you're not going to use it.
