as already stated by you, this is half of the fix for PR install/9582.
Doing the same for pkgsrc is mostly copy&paste (I've already done that), but
it's not very clean.
To fetch pkgsrc, you cannot use the ftp directories as used before, because
they are rooted in the netbsd/ directory. To fetch pkgsrc, you'd have to use
a ../pkgsrc/ in the pathname.
Do you really want that? Or rather change the ftp root directory (which might
not be reliable)?
