After encountered a bunch of not working pkg-s and other constant problems with them I became curios about how unrightfully forgotten BPI works?
Can someone summarize the mechanics?
What can be made to create something like BPI with current ports\pkg system?
If I installed wget from the pkg
pkg install wget
and then decided to installing again from port
make install clean
then what would happened???
Will the port installation overwrite the pkg installation? Or duplicated wget installation?

Over the past few years have spent a significant amount of time (seemingly endless) on port/package maintenance tasks. It seems that we should be able to:

However, when I search from within FreeBSD using pkg search, I could...
