Please see the "precompiled" part of

``Our policy is that we accept binaries only from pkgsrc developers to 
guarantee that the packages don't contain any trojan horses etc. This is 
not to annoy anyone but rather to protect our users! You're still free 
to put up your home-made binary packages and tell the world where to get 
them. NetBSD developers doing bulk builds and wanting to upload them 
please see Section 5.3.8, Uploading results of a bulk build.''

That aside, I'm curious to hear how you got all the packages on a DVD - 
IIRC last time I tried to do that for what came out of a bulk build from 
the pkgsrc-2004Q4 branch, it didn't fit on a DVD any more. (Then again I 
also put i386 install sets on that, maybe that was too much).
