Thanks for writing up something. It is sorely needed.

Or in pkgsrc.

I don't know what the right command is, but this isn't it. I also tried
something more realistic:
rsync -z --delete -r firstname.lastname@example.org:/pub/NetBSD-cvs/main \
as well as changing anonymous@ftp to anoncvs@anoncvs. Neither of these
worked - they gave permission denied errors.
Oh, and to even get that far I had to set RSYNC_RSH=ssh - neither of those
machines accept incoming rsh.
So, is rsync only allowed for those people who have a real account on the
machines, or is there some way to do anonymous rsync?

You're probably sticking your neck out a bit here...
Also, how about a quick tutorial on setting up to do cvs from
anoncvs.netbsd.org, as well as how to build source the first time, eg (a
*very* rough draft, with probably a lot of incorrect info):
Getting and Updating NetBSD Source with CVS:
1) get and install the CVS package from pkgsrc (or get it from
ftp://ftp.cyclic.com/pub/cvs-* or ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/cvs)
2) get and install the ssh package from pkgsrc.
3) become root
4) CVS_RSH=ssh; export CVS_RSH
CVSROOTemail@example.com:/cvsroot; export CVSROOT
cvs checkout -P src-crypto-all (if you're in the U.S.)
cvs checkout -P src-no-crypto (if you're outside the U.S.)
[insert note here about non-U.S. sources of crypto-src]
You should now have a full set of NetBSD sources in /usr/src! To update the
CVS_RSH=ssh; export CVS_RSH
cvs update -d -P
Building NetBSD from source (assuming you have an up-to-date NetBSD binary
snapshot, and source in /usr/src, on your machine already):
To build userland the first time:
make OBJDIR=/usr/obj obj
make OBJDIR=/usr/obj build
To update userland binaries after a CVS update:
make OBJDIR=/usr/obj UPDATE=1 build
These will install the new binaries on the running system - reboot to make
sure they all take effect. To build the binaries into some other location
(in case you're paranoid about tromping on a running system), just set
make OBJDIR=/usr/obj DESTDIR=/usr/NetBSD-new-build UPDATE=1 build
[Please correct any of these that are wrong! I haven't built the system the
same way twice yet! :-P]
To build a new kernel: follow the normal kernel building directions.
Or something like that!
