Well, for me, it is very predictable, than when I want to read PostgreSQL
guide with HTML browser, I should go to /usr/pkg/share/doc/html/postgresql.

Well, you're quite right - but as I am a *BSD user since some time, some
things are now obvious to me, and I get used to it - so I don't really see
if it is a problem. You can still create the functionality you want with
some shell scripts and ln(1). It will surely be less time-consuming, than
chaning pkgsrc entries and testing them.

Take care,
