I don't have much to add regarding using both. I know there have been
efforts to sandbox MacPorts such that it won't see libraries from
other prefixes. I'm not sure what state that is in currently.

I did want to add that I have kept my sanity by using DirEnv [1] to
modify my PATH and other environment variables as I change
directories. It is available in MacPorts. I also heavily rely on
Python VirtualEnv.
