dports is exactly like freebsd ports in structure, so I'm not making the 
logical jump "and so this is why I want to use pkgsrc instead" with you.

moreover, all these packages are already built in both pkgsrc and dports.

Maybe you think dports is binary only?  You can build from source just 
like FreeBSD although its usually unnecessary.

If you are already familiar with FreeBSD, then you may be familiar with 
"pkg".  You would just need to install the binary firefox package (and 
xorg, etc).
