some issues with pkgsrc (MIPS)

Dear fellow pkgsrc users,

I'm running netbsd/pmax in gxemul. I downloaded the current pkgsrc.tar.bz2 and expanded it to /usr as instructed. It works however...

I had a lot of trouble compiling any port until I found out that I first had to install pkgtools/digest.

I had trouble installing some ports until I discovered I had to install pkgtools/x11-links. This time installing a port at least told me it needed x11-links, but I thought pkgsrc should build and install any dependencies automatically?

If these are some special cases, why are they not mentioned in the installation instructions?

Also, for any package I install I have to "make" twice. Here is an example:

===> Skipping vulnerability checks.
WARNING: No /usr/pkgsrc/distfiles/pkg-vulnerabilities file found
WARNING: To fix, install the pkgsrc/security/audit-packages
WARNING: package and run: `/usr/pkg/sbin/download-vulnerability-list'.
=> Fetching blackbox-0.65.0.tar.gz
=> Total size: 292950 bytes
Requesting /*not typed, it downloads fine, checksums are fine*/
===> Installing dependencies for blackbox-0.65.0nb6
*** Error code 1

make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/wm/blackbox

The next time I 'make' it works. This is the case for every port I've tried; it wouldn't be too big a deal except the emulated machine is painfully slow.

Also, cvs updating seems to not be working:

#cd /usr/pkgsrc
#cvs update -dP
Connection to closed by remote host.
cvs [update aborted]: received broken pipe signal.

The funny thing is, it did work once or twice before on different installs.

Is there something I've been doing wrong? Documentation I'm missing?

Thanks for any help,
