No bug, but you will need to run pkg repo to turn the collection
of packages you've built into a pkgng repository.

You don't need to use poudriere but it is very convenient once set
up. For example - updating the ports tree and rebuilding the affected ports
poudriere ports -u
poudriere bulk -f /root/packages -j build
build is my build jail, and /root/packages is a file listing the
packages I want.
