Re: x11-links won't install full package-content

I do use a mix of pre-built binaries and pkgsrc.
My SSD isn't big enough to build things like firefox with pkgsrc.

Besides, there are a few packages that I want to stay AWAY from but, they are building dependencies of things I use. So, I install the binary, build my stuff and remove the binary.
Honestly, if only firefox was offered as a pre-built binary for current, I'd be running current. Although, I can't afford to build firefox.
Actually, I'd dump firefox if I had a simpler browser that could replace it. I used Midori as long as I could but it seems to be dead again :(

about mixing being frowned on:

If the packages are built with the same pkgsrc sources for the same OS
version, that's fine.

So if you are using the official 9 builds from amd64 for 2020Q1, check
out that branch for your builds.
