Interesting.  If this is true, then I can just start upgrading my 'pkg_add' installed packages using ports and eventually they will all be converted over to 'make'.

However, your comment seems to be in disagreement with online warnings of "do not mix 'pkg_add' packages with 'make' ports".

My original question's intention was to prevent me from having a system where some packages were installed with 'pkg_add' while others were installed with 'make'.

Thank you,
