I do. I have a private repo in $PORTSDIR/local.  It's checked out on top 
of a poudriere ports tree and connected to the build system with:


in make.conf.  You'll also want:


in $PORTSDIR/.git/info/exclude to avoid poudriere ports -u complaining 
about a dirty tree.

I tried using the overlays feature, but it has race conditions with the 
shorthand mechanisms that make complex port skeletons easy to maintain.
