I just found Joyent (http://www.joyent.com/) who use pkgsrc on

Anyone heard of them before?
No - though it looks like they've been using pkgsrc since March
We should definitely drop them a line to see how they are
getting along with pkgsrc if noone has already spoken to them :)
I am using their service. They switched from Blastwave to pkgsrc last
March, and the initial pkgsrc deployment was based on pkgsrc-2007Q4.
There are binary packages for 2008Q2 as well (http://pkgsrc.joyent.com/2008Q2/
), but I suspect many of their customers are still using 2007Q4.
The base system is pkgsrc-ready. It has gcc-3.4.3 and all the
required tools to bootstrap pkgsrc. They also provide a customized
mk.conf (http://pkgsrc.joyent.com/2008Q3/mk.conf), setting many
options useful for web services.
