I'm having some issues with the latest iteration of pkgsrc on Mac OS 
X.  I'm trying to get it up and running but it fails as I attempt to 
build pkgtools/pkg_install.  The problem lies in the references used. 
As per this:
===> Extracting for digest-20010807
zsh: no such file or directory: /usr/pkg/sbin/pkg_info
bmake is looking for pkg_info under /usr/pkg/sbin which doesn't 
exist.  This is related to pkg not being /usr but under 
/Volumes/NetBSD and, maybe, sbin/pkg_info not existing under 
/Volumes/NetBSD/pkg.  How do I change the /usr/pkg directory 
references to /Volumes/NetBSD/pkg globally so I don't run into this 
issue again?

OS X - UNIX for the rest of us
NetBSD - Catch the Power!
