I'm still working on this howto (mind the FIXMEs all over) and it will remain
in german for sure. But maybe together with the further usage examples on
the page might be helpful to someone.

I don't think so. Actually the only two thing that annoys me about 
pkg_comp is that PKG_DEVELOPER is set inside the chroot's etc/mk.conf
(which imo is safe to be deleted after makeroot) and packages "failing"
because they're built as dependency already (which is why I advise to
check 'pkg_chk -uqb | grep -v available' before actual updates to see
which packages still need manual work). I keep forgetting to PR though.
