Questions about pkgsrc migration

Since I didn't feel like rebuilding all my ports after the stat changes in
PREVIEW, my DFly box has pretty much been frozen as far as ports go.  I'm
trying to decide when would be a good time to switch to pkgsrc and what would
be the best way to do so.

Is it best to deinstall everything with portupgrade/pkg_delete and then start
from scratch?  How complex is the pkgsrc setup at this point?  Has anyone put
together a document for the migration path?
