Re: Compiling 6.0_RC1 fails

One question,
After update the major branch,
I should rebuild all pkgsrc, which are currently installed on the system.
FreeBSD has portmanager/portmaster doing this.
Is there portmanager/portmaster equivalence in NetBSD?

Some methods for upgrading using pkgsrc builds are documented at

You may also choose to use binary packages (if available for your
platform) and use pkgin (or nih).

(Will someone update that last wikipage with quick notes on getting
started with pkgin and nih?)

For today I am still using pkg_chk; however, I want to get started with nih. I could write "getting started with nih" or something like that, but probably not until next week. I actually have no clue about NetBSD governance or write access to the wiki.
