Well, ports+dfports is still the 'official' way, but developers have
mostly stopped developing and patching for it, and moved to pkgsrc.
Although pkgsrc isn't the ideal replacement, Justin's ipm isn't finished
yet and pkgsrc offers the best alternative. I don't know if there's a
cvsup server for pkgsrc, as it originates from NetBSD where anoncvs is
the popular choice.
Out of curiosity, when mixing ports+dfport & pkgsrc ports having the target directory /usr/local what great evil will happen?

I like to use pkgsrc but I also want to fallback to ports if a port hasn't been made to pkgsrc.
I also saw that pkgsrc in the dragonfly incarnation uses bmake, whats up with that why not make?
