[PC-BSD Testing] Runports confusion

I posted the following at wiki.pcbsd.org as a discussion for this issue.
This needs to be clarified a bit more.
I opened a Konsole using runports as root and then did portsnap fetch, but that did not create a ports tree in /usr/ports. Seems you must create that tree the usual way first and then switch to runports to build a port.
What about adding packages by pkg_add?
Please explain in more detail what's going on here with runports.
Why is there also a runports command for user - don't you always want to build ports as root?
When I ran portsnap from runports, what happened? It didn't complain.
Couldn't find a ports tree anywhere. There is no /PCBSD/ports, or /local/ports. Then I used system-->Runports (root) to fetch but it crashed with a sig 11. Then ran portsnap fetch from a regular konsole and it reported the latest snapshot matched what we already have. But.... where?
Now what do I do? There is nothing in /usr/ports.
Also, how will this play with programs like kports (the latest version released a week ago or so cannot yet build ports, just examine what you have and such)?
Last question. I'm going to build a jail to run Drupal/php5/mysql/apache2, probably using The Warden. I presume I need a separate ports tree for the jail, and if so, then I get the separation from the desktop automatically, right?
