binary pkgsrc on freebsd?

How far does the binary compatability between *BSD derivatives extend?
I'm thinking of trialling FreeBSD on this host for the ZFS capability
however I'd like to stick to using pkgsrc for my package management.

Can I run packages compiled for NetBSD on a FreeBSD host or do I need to
compile them all from scratch? Is there a repository of binary packages
available for FreeBSD as there is for NetBSD? Can I use the wonderful
PKG_PATH variable to pull packages in via a local FTP repository as I do
