I sad, It's sure not to work. Make.conf is included from,
therefore the actual sequence of definitions will be like this:

# it came around from /etc/make.conf first
.if defined(PORTSDIR)
PORTSDIR= /foo/bar

# and it came from /usr/share/mk/ later
PORTSDIR?= /usr/ports

And it's proved to set PORTSDIR to /usr/ports instead of /foo/bar :-(
