ports and packages installed on one system, how to make pkg only

Possibly a silly question -:

There is a system that has a mix of ports installed via the traditional method
(local ports tree) *and* ports installed via pkg.

I want the system to use pkg entirely for space and cpu reasons.

Will pkg upgrade -f do what I want without having to go through each
installed port? In other words, will pkg upgrade -f act upon the ports that
have been compiled and installed via the local ports tree? 

Or would portmaster be a better tool for this purpose?
