The netbsd-1-6 pkgsrc branch is supposed to be a known set of
packages, together with security pullups, and portability fixes. It
was meant to fix the fact that CVS tags don't really work well for
slower (sparc) bulk builds like Dan's just done, which can take a
number of weeks. The netbsd-1-6 pkgsrc branch doesn't really fit into
the standard stable/current model as used in other parts of NetBSD.
