I'm quite certain that it would be possible to write a mail-filter that
takes pkgsrc-changes mails as input and goes to the aproppriate
directory and does a cvs update.

Whether or not that is a good idea or more efficient, is a completely
different question, though.

Personally, I feel updating the packages I use/need by hand through cvs
on a regular basis is not a problem.  But that's just me.  I'm sure, if
there was an easier way, I'd enjoy that, too.
