Mill your lumber to S4S and stack it on edge in a place that will have the same conditions as your house (temperature, humidity). Let it sit for a few days. Go back through the material and check for excessive bow or twist. You can deal with some bowed stiles by putting them on the hinge side or latch side if the stile will touch the top and bottom of the stop and flex in to the latch. A twisted stile is the death of a door. To check for twist place the stile on a flat surface. If the board rock from corner to corner on opposite end, don't use it.

We use Sugar Pine for our millwork that requires Pine. Our vendor has C+btr as well as a couple of knotty grades. The stuff is very stable and a joy to work with. It is rare to see a piece move after jointing and planing.
I suggest you bring your pine in and acclimatize it, then face and edge on the joiner, leaving it oversize. Sticker it, and let it sit for a few days, then put the eye to it. If it is straight, then it is worth planing, but then let it sit again, and then take a look. Twisted will not work, but some bows can be acccomodated if you work with it a bit, as stated above.
I find that as a commercial enterprise, I just cannot take the risk, so I buy and use the best wood I can to minimize problems and smooth the process.
