To make a long answer short: You won't get any help from the pkgsrc
developers, since mixing the stable branch and current is not support
for very good reasons. Dependencies change, infrastructure changes, etc.
Don't even try this if you don't know *exactly* what you are doing. You
most likely don't fall into that category though.
