No, it is not more difficult if done at least minimally carefully.
In most cases main() should consist only of argument parsing and calling
approporiate functions. Thus it is should be indifferent whether you
write a library or a standalone program. (Making it a library even makes
unit testing simpler, to appease those who drank too much of testing kool aid.)

What does "install pkgsrc" mean here?
How do you propose to handle the difference in release cycles?
