I've just imported the latest versions of libnbcompat, mtree, pax,
pkg_install and tnftp into bootstrap-pkgsrc for your enjoyment. I've
tested this on Darwin 6.6, FreeBSD 4.6 and Linux, and the components
are known to build on IRIX (6.5? Jan?)
the biggest user-visible change this brings is pkg_install support
for pkgviews "out-of-the-box".
as usual, please report any problems with send-pr(1), or send mail to
this list (tech-pkg@NetBSD.org).
recent work on libnbcompat has meant that the overhead of maintaining
the various programs needed for pkgsrc operation is significantly
reduced. many thanks to Johnny Lam for his work on this, as well as a
number of others who have provided feedback, testing, bug reports and
