PACKAGES(7)                 NetBSD Reference Manual                PACKAGES(7)

     packages - NetBSD user package variables

That's the list of variables one can set in pkgs that was ripped off and put into nroff format some time ago. (and i guess is since 
then not maintained as good as the things in pkgsrc itself).

I wouldn't mind seeing this back in pkgsrc or even, but that's 
only my personal opinion then.
