I tried to use pkgsrc-2008Q1 on Solaris 10 and now I want to upgrade it

something about it in the docs.
I've been doing a combination of what Greg Troxel suggested in my
environment. First, I have a "build" machine where I produce binary
packages. Then I install the binary packages on other machines.
On the "build" machine, I use...
Once that's completed successfully, I use pkg_chk on the other machines
pkg_chk -bua -P ftp://path/to/build/machine/pakcages
That should mean you can use the second form here with the
ftp.netbsd.org or any pkgsrc repository.
The only thing that I believe doesn't work well here is that if I leave
multiple versions of binary packages in the repository, pkg_chk doesn't
always pick the best (latest) one.
I have been using this method for 3 stable pkgsrc releases with minimal
issues, on NetBSD and RedHat Linux. For NetBSD, I also use pkg_comp to
build the packages, then install binary packages everywhere with pkg_chk.
