Package location

Adding ports to FreeBSD 7 I normally build from source and create a  
package.  With previous versions the created packages went into /usr/ 
ports/packages/All.  However the packages directory was not created on  
a new installation.  The packages were being built in the ports top  
level directory.  Before I noticed that, I created a packages  
directory and the remaining packages are being built in it as before.   
I didn't find any indications of a change in the various notes with  
the release.  Has there been a change in the package structure?
