I'm using make.conf -style configuration.  I haven't followed closely
the development of Poudriere, but I suspect this is the old way,
although according to the manpage it's still supported.

I'm not sure about what you're saying for /var/db/ports.  This
directly is used by the ports tree; in my experience Poudriere uses a
separate tree for each { jail, set }.
