My impression from using NetBSD was that it's basically the same as ports:
make -C X/a/b install [package] -> Y/(bin,lib,...)
only an X and Y being different for the two OSes:
NetBSD: X=/usr/pkgsrc, Y=/usr/pkg
FreeBSD: X=/usr/ports, Y=/usr/local
I.e. if you use a "source" install, not installing pre-built packages.
Do you remember any specifics about the ports pains you had, absent from pkgsrc?
