This looks quite cool, especially the fact that it'd be tied into
pkg_add and pkg_delete.
By "makefiles" are you referring to the ports/Mk stuff, or are you
referring to actual Makefiles for src/usr.sbin/pkg_install (which is
ultimately where pkg_trans should go)?
And I assume by "ruby" you're referring to the portupgrade tie-ins.
