No, package and port are different things.
Ports are the recipes to build packages or install directly, they are in 
file system under /usr/ports, and packages are the collection of 
binaries that can be installed, located in the repository, like one that 
is being pointed to by /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf

My question is why pkg-install is run during the stage phase? Isn't this 
the wrong thing to do? I think only make install should run it.
