Packages should work normaly, but can give some trouble afther you
update. There is a port called portupgrade which has the same goal as
the Debian apt system. You are better of using this if you like to
upgrade you installed packages. Packages however can stil be a problem.
Debian handels packages better.

Its likly that using packages isn't that high on the agenda since
installing application by compiling isn't that hard to do with the ports

i.e.    cd /usr/port/www/mozilla; make install && make clean
or      portinstall www/mozilla
