It's funny. I compile everything myself in FreeBSD. Won't even
consider packages except to fix some dependency that won't compile.

And yet I compile nothing ever in kubuntu. Well, except choqok, which
has some of the worst package support ever.

I used portmaster when portupgrade didn't work and vice versa: I frequently had to dive into the relevant port and make deinstall and reinstall, I cleaned randomly, I fought pkg_delete and pkgdb -F. The most annoying things were the many times portupgrade (or master) stopped saying 'xx-0-3 cannot be installed because xx-0-2 is in the same place' and I had to shout at it "You know what's needed, you've just told me what to do, I'm providing the electricity, why can't you do it yourself you lazy machine?".

It's in testing now and I've had pretty good experiences with it thus far. It will take a bit for port maintainers to get used to binary packages really being a first-class citizen, I suspect, but a dramatic improvement from most perspectives even before that happens.
