The ports use pkg_create when you use 'make package' or 'make
package-recursive'. Portupgrade uses it to backup an installed port
before upgrading it.

If you want to easily make packages for yourself from your installed
ports, use this:

pkg_create -jb packagename

where packagename is one of the packages that you have installed (see pkg_info).
