Using a mixture of portmaster and pre-compiled packages is hard to get
right.  Mostly because of lack of love for portmaster(8) and adapting it
to understand how things work in a pkg(8) universe.

Mixing packages built in your own poudriere with the default package
repos is easier, but still has some rough spots.  This is something that
is known to be a weak point, and a lot of the trouble is due to the
'baked in' dependencies on specific package versions we have at the
moment.  There is code to work with alternate packages or ranges of
versions in pkg(8), but it's a huge change to the ports to introduce
something like that, so they are taking it slowly and carefully.

	Cheers,

	Matthew
