I will do this this weekend because at the moment I'm rebuilding my
NetBSD gateway machine with the new pkgsrc-2009Q1 release. Tomorrow I
will build the software on the solaris/opensolaris server's.
I did submit the patch to you becuase I keep an archive of semi private
patches on the gateway who sucks in the pkgsrc etc stuff and applies my
patches if they are not yet included in the releases and then uploads
it to my private cvs-server who feeds my network of 30 odd machines.
