Unless you want to build up your own package, the best thing to do when
you just try out a beta-type version is to download it and configure it
the way it goes, maybe with setenv'ing CPPFLAGS to -I/usr/pkg/include
and LDFLAGS to -L/usr/pkg/lib. You can add also compilation flags by
setenv'ing CXXFLAGS ou CCFLAGS.
So, when you make install your beta-version, it goes into the /usr/local
tree, which does not conflict with /usr/pkg. You can then either specify
the whole path to choose the version you want to use, or modify your
PATH variable and rehash to mask /usr/pkg/bin by /usr/local/bin, for
Good luck !
