I read about it, but don't understand the issue.

If I never ever would use PBI again but ports/packages only in the
future, it still would cause issues? The port directory isn't empty.

I installed PC-BSD 8.2, regarding to the issues to partition, when I
started with FreeBSD 9.0, .

Manually downloading and installing is ok as a workaround, but in the
end everything should work without workarounds.
So PC-BSD isn't really FreeBSD ;)? I asked before I installed it ;) and
it was said, that it is FreeBSD ;).

However, since I've got my Linux for work, I don't depend on BSD. I can
spend some time to get BSD working :), OTOH I don't have much time to do
the same things again and again + I have to avoid that working on BSD
might damage my Linux installs or data.
