Don't think it should be but I had problems with pkg_add after
reinstall with 5.0.1 on eeepc and problem was lack of at least
/usr/pkg but I didn't progress further and restored packages
from backups (I'd been getting error writing to disk so remade
filesystem with full check and went back from WAPBL to ffsv1).

That was a few weeks ago and ssd write problem hasn't come
back but I've not used it much either.
