Yes and no,
portage uses Makefiles too - but the "origin" ones - means: generated by the
usual origin configure scripts in the origin software tarball of the software
usually/as possible from original source url. Portage does just eventually
required parametering of the configure process.
So an ebuild is "similiar" to an macports portfile.
pkgsrc uses make directly as a "platform independent" tool with own Makefiles
while Gentoo portage uses python as this is "platform independent" as much as
required for Gentoo...
Both concepts are nice but has pitfalls too...
