Well, personally, I think no, but almost 7000 packages is better than
nothing. RHEL provides about 2500 packages or so, SLES -- ~3500 packages
in their repo.

I'm not interested in FreeBSD actually, I ran that bulk build just for
fun.  I've not seen any bulk build for FreeBSD for years, so it was just
interesting for me to see how good support for FreeBSD is. If you have a
hardware that runs FreeBSD welcome to pkgsrc-bulk@ ;-) At least I'll fix
my own packages and packages I'm interested in.
