sysinstall vs ports

I have a general question for the list. Does the sysinstall utility use the 
same scripts as the ports tree? The reason I ask is because when I install 
CUPS it fails to create the following directories.

But I have been told (though I have not tested it) that when compiled from the 
ports tree these directories are created. Can sombody shed some light on 
this. I have had some packages which won't install from sysinstall but they 
will when using make utility in the ports tree.
