BSD and Darwin derivatives "DesktopBSD 1.6RC3 for AMD64 is now available for download via BitTorrent and from our mirror sites. It includes several improvements made since the release of 1.6RC3 for i386, including: better performance by disabling SMP on single core/processor computers, fixed installation on disks with special partition names, inclusion of the FreeBSD ports collection on the DVD, and more."

"It looks that PBIs are not that compatible with the standard FreeBSD way of installing software."

No, it's the other way round: If you use PBIs only in PC-BSD, you shouldn't run into problems. If you start using ports / packages with PC-BSD, it might (!) cause problems with certain applications, but if you're lucky, you're using the ones that work without interferences.

But finally, your statement is correct. PBI introduced new paths that are not compatible with FreeBSDs standard locations for software installation (read "man hier" for more info).
