I think I understand why people may want to see "official package manager"but it's not clear for me what is the purpose of "integration",
especially if you say
about mk/*. Can you explain?
Sure. In ports, the mk. has been modified such that pkg (the "official" binary package manager) is automatically included as a dependency for every single port.
The reason is that pkg has its own database which is not compatible with the pkg_* tools databases.
I don't know of any other way to do it other than rolling replace though. It seems like it is for anyone that tries to build from source rather than prebuild binaries.It's well known that "make replace" is only for pkgsrc developers :-)
