Three points:

As they are now, print/tex-musixtex and print/tex-bagpipetex don't like
teTeX 2.x.  I don't see why they wouldn't, but I haven't had the time to
sit down and fix them.  Please don't delete these two packages.

There was an extended discussion about the fetchyahoo package.  It was
dropped from pkgsrc because its homepage was missing and Google didn't
help in finding it.  Well, fetchyahoo is back at with updates.  The old page,, now points there.  I'd like to see that
one put back into pkgsrc.

A few months ago I patched nosefart to allow it to work with
NetBSD's audio subsystem and send-pr'ed the package.  Nothing yet.
