No doubt I will not be alone in saying you need to check the pkgsrc guide, easy
to find from NetBSD web site (click on Software Packages).
I did the initial download by ftp from ftp.netbsd.org, got the current version
rather than the quarterly.
I never tried CVS but intend to see how this works for pkgsrc update.
Does DragonflyBSD have a file /usr/Makefile? I have never seen such a file
before in this directory location.
