Personally, I'm fine with the individual patch files, I just think it
should be an option to tgz (or something else) up all of /usr/pkgsrc
and have pieces extracted as needed.
Compared to the time to compile a pkg, extract time should be minimal,
and it would save a lot of space and inodes.
Is there any compressed archive format that is efficiently updatable?
