How does pkgsrc on Linux know if a dependency is already installed as part of
Linux distribution, and not build dependencies in redundantly?
Linux does not have a BSD-style base system, everything is part of a package.
Since packages in pkgsrc can't build on thin air, how does one get started
with pkgsrc on Linux? I think Jeremy Reed wrote about having a Linux system
using pkgsrc as the only package manager. Build basic tools using the
principles of Linux from Scratch or Cross Linux from Scratch?
