I did not state that the "environment is constrained by poudriere".
The environment is contrained due to resource limits.  If you
only have 1 Gb of memory and 5-10 GB diskspace, then using poudriere
with zfs and jails is a nonstarter.  Yes, I'm aware that zfs is not
required.  Can't find info on whether jails can be avoided.  Having
say lang/llvm40 installed in /usr/local and in a jail would consumes
2.6 GB.  That's 1 port!
