I would. While the ports are handled separately from the base system
they need to be maintained as well. If a version of a port has issues
then an older version could stay in place.

The pr system is used for ports as well as the base system.

Can't say I'm sure which key you refer to as compose - do you mean Alt
or Ctrl? I have heard of the ctrl key being remapped to the caps lock
for continuous use. You may also look into turning on sticky keys, it
keeps a modifier key active without holding it down so that the next key
pressed has the modifier included. see x11/xkbset
