No. The initial install options do not depend on what port management
you are using. However, you do need to prepare for a possible future
upgrade of the port that was installed with non-default compile
If you are using portupgrade then you need to edit pkgtools.conf. If
are using portmanager then you need to edit pkgtools.conf or pm-020.conf.
