pkgng seems to be working with most of portmaster's options but not all.

I'm not sure about the precise functionality you highlighted here, but
it is the case that portmaster+pkgng doesn't have a complete
implementation of portmaster+pkg_tools functionality. Partly that's
because portmaster was written around pkg_tools and closely tied to the
way those tools work. Partly it's because no-one has yet written the
code to make everything fully compatible. Some of that is code to go
into pkgng itself, some to go into portmaster and some a mixture of both.
In each of those cases, patches are very welcome. We like pull requests
on GitHub (https://github.com/pkgng/pkgng,
https://github.com/portmaster/portmaster) but if you have a contribution
then any reasonable means of bringing it to our attention is good.
