There are a number of difficulties:
1: Making sure that your ports tree is in sync with the one used for
2: Preventing pkg from replacing your ports during pkg upgrade (careful use
of pkg lock is required)
3: Dependencies built with different options may not always work.
I've found it fairly easy to handle a few leaf packages as ports
more than that is likely to get fiddly.
