If they are 'ports' specificly built for FreeBSD, shouldn't the port

Or maybe the original install/release needs to be changed to
same as the port.
It's a pain having to debug where everything went, change config
update startup scripts, make symlinks, etc... When if it were Linux
RPM install would update it and I'd be done with it.
Just my observations.
The ports tree installs things to the /usr/local/ prefix, to help you
keep your ports and base system separate. This is a normal behavior,
and has been normal for a lot longer than you have been using
FreeBSD. I apologize, but I doubt the developers are going to change
the standard behavior just because you got confused the first time
you tried to replace a base system component.
Look here in section 18.104.22.168:
