If you're installing from ports, whether building from within the ports
tree or using a port management tool like portupgrade or portmaster, you
are installing from source.

package is meant to simplify the process by just installing a compiled
binary and some necessary libraries, but I do have consistent problems
with installs from pkg - not to mention the various things that aren't
in pkg yet...
