Up until last week I was keeping my /usr/pkgsrc up to date using 
NetBSD-current's pkgsrc.tar.gz.  It wasn't until the recent changes 
( and the small bug ( ... || ${TRUE} in shared a.out libs ) that it 
dawned on me that for a 1.3.3 system, this might not be a Good Thing.

Is there an official mechanism to keep a released system's /usr/pkgsrc current 
(with respect to included packages, not NetBSD-current)?

I browsed through but didn't see much on the topic.  
Pointers to past discussions welcome.
