[PC-BSD Support] About deleting installed ports when upgrade

Hi Folks!.

I wanna ask to the PcBSD system responsibles why is necessary, when an update
from 8.0 to 8.1 is done, delete all ports installed with the ports tree
system. It's a very strong work recompile all of them again.

When a "pure" FreeBSD system is upgraded from 8.0 to 8.1 the ports installed
with the  tree are "untouched". Why PcBSD must delete them, please?.

You are very kind for your attention.

Thanks you very much, in advance.
