I have just downloaded the pkgsrc tarball from this URL:

mtime: 2005.01.08 04:07

And then I wanted to update it from cvs like that:

# cd /usr/pkgsrc
# cvs update -dP
cvs update: in directory .:
cvs update: ignoring CVS/Root because it specifies a non-existent repository /ftp/pub/NetBSD-cvs/main
cvs update: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the `-d' option
cvs [update aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable.
# cat CVS/Root
# cat CVS/Repository

Is this considered normal?
