Recent i386 installations show pkg_add hanging at the end of

I am pretty sure this was happening to me on a workstation which is behind a 
NAT gateway. Both machines run netbsd. I wasn't able to find the reason so I 
changed by PKG_PATH to use http. I haven't had any problems since then.

I'm wondering if there's a reason to use ftp at all.
