Ports and pkgs are different sides of the same coin.

Almost exactly the same.  The difference is that pkg_delete(1) will
delete packages by matching the name and version number stored in
/var/db/pkg, whereas make deinstall deletes the all packages installed
from a particular ports directory where the same $PREFIX setting was
used to install as is currently in force.  Unless you're in the habit
of installing multiple copies of ports/pkgs using different $PREFIX
settings, that generally comes out to be the same thing.
