Interesting.  If this is true, then I can just start upgrading my 'pkg_add' 
installed packages using ports and eventually they will all be converted over 
to 'make'.

However, your comment seems to be in disagreement with online warnings of "do not 
mix 'pkg_add' packages with 'make' ports".

portmaster will deinstall and reinstall (and I believe rollback if something blows up). You are correct - don't mix ports and packages.

My original question's intention was to prevent me from having a system where 
some packages were installed with 'pkg_add' while others were installed with 

portmaster is probably the easiest road to get you there.
