Well, this is not actually true.
1) If one builds from source from /usr/dports, pkg is built first
2) If one doesn't have /usr/dports, then then can retrieve pkg from the
"make pkg-bootstrap" command, and a working version of package will be
downloaded so then pre-build binary packages can be retrieve. But
first, it will update itself to the latest package (hence, a bootstrap
in the truest sense of the word)

It is true that dports-create relies on git, but we've broken the cycle.
There is a "dports-download" option that downloads the latest version
of the repository. In the case above, you would use "make
dports-download", build git from source, "rm -rf /usr/dports" then use
"make dports-create" if you want to convert /usr/dports to git repository.
