Hello,

I have been using "make" to install ports and "portsnap/portmaster" to
update my system.  But I'm over it now.

I'm running 10.1-RELEASE and have very few ports installed.

Is the migration from make/portsnap/portmaster -> pkg as simple as:

pkg delete portmaster
rm -rf /usr/ports
pkg update
pkg upgrade

?

Thank you,

Chris
