I've been mixing ports and packages without issue for years. There are a dozen
programs whose defaults don't fit my environment, so I build those with poudriere.

This works for me:
1. build with poudriere
2. give poudriere repo lowest priority rating in .../pkg/repos/local.conf
3. lock the poudriere packages
4. update / upgrade all non-locked packages
5. unlock and update / upgrade all locked packages

And now that poudriere is able to download build-requirements from FreeBSD's repo, it only
builds the dozen programs plus anything required by the custom settings. If you tell pkg not
to change repos inside the pkg.conf, it doesn't stomp over your poudriere-built packages.
