when "pkgsrc" tries to add a user or group on my NetBSD system it checks
all the existing accounts including the ones provided via NIS. As a
results it picks a rather large user id larger in the space I use for
NIS accounts and groups (>=1000).

Is there a way to configure "pkgsrc" to use a certain range of user and
group ids e.g. 500-999? I've currently set "PKG_CREATE_USERGROUP" to
"no" which allows me to pick the user id manually. But that's not every
comfortable of course.
