The ports tree installs things to the /usr/local/ prefix, to help you
keep your ports and base system separate. This is a normal behavior,
and has been normal for a lot longer than you have been using
FreeBSD. I apologize, but I doubt the developers are going to change
the standard behavior just because you got confused the first time
you tried to replace a base system component.
