Apparently, but you can always clean up with pkg_delete(8).
That's one of the good things about sticking with the ports system.

Sounds like you got packages for the wrong FreeBSD version. If you
wanted help with that, we would need more information. But "pkg-add -r"
should get it right for basic installs.

Just "make install", perhaps?

bluefish isn't the "Command not found." type is the command it can't
find. type isn't a program; it's a builtin on sh-style shells, but
not on csh-style shells, which you appear to be using. Try the
standard Unix command "which" instead. [Not that I think it will help
in this case, because I don't think bluefish actually is installed at
that point. But pkg_info(1) will tell you.]
