Good suggestion.  Did some reading in bsd.port.mk and came up with the
basis for a hack to get a port installed without pkg_*.  If only total
elegant solutions are entertained here then I will say no further, but
here goes:
 cd /usr/ports/foo/pkg_create
 make NO_PKG_REGISTER install
 (pkg_create gets installed but not recorded)

     Since you claim superior knowledge about ports than me, I wont bother
explaining it.  I'm only trying to satisfy your original question. 

" IF the pkg_* utils were
 ports, how would you install them??"
