This sounds like you, like many other people have done in the past, have
built an in-house solution based on the tools available at the time,
which includes 'make package', but you probably have other tools around
it to deal with the distribution.  In that case, there's no reason
for you to change anything.  If you in-house solution works for you,
keep using it.  Poudriere can provide the same functionality out of the
box, and would be my first recommendation for people starting a local
package repository, but if you already have a system in place, there's
probably no need to spend time to migrate to poudriere.
