It's been years since I used gentoo/portage, but my understanding is
that its trended towards binary packages.. of course, this may be a
misunderstanding, because I haven't used it in years :) 

And I'm sure you can still use portage in strictly source build mode.

I've noticed the same thing with FreeBSD - unless you keep your own
package repo with poudriere, or maybe portmaster or something,
trying to keep a mix of stuff installed via src, from ports, and
binaries installed directly via the pkg command, can cause some
issues. The.. "issues"..  are largely to do with whether you went
in and changed options in the `make config` stage of building a
particular port.  I suppose if you just built EVERYTHING from src
out of ports (which actually converts what you just built into a
FreeBSD txz pkg in the process of `make install`) and never installed
a binary package, it might not be such a big deal.. until you tried
to do a major OS update, via freebsd-update or via make
buildworld/buildkernel && make installworld/installkernel, in either
case you generally need to upgrade all your packages to use the new
ABI, if you're doing a major version jump.
