Thanks Matthew, but I think I haven't explained very well. I am referring to use a different ports repo when I need to build several packages with poudriere, not when I want to install them using pkg.

To be more clear: when I launch the command "poudriere ports -c", is it possible to specify what, or more concise, from where ports will be downloaded??
