im trying to use pkgsrc to set up apache, php, subversion and some more 
tools on an
FreeBSD 5.3  box as an non-root-user. Thanks to Hubert Feyrer's mk.conf  
everything seems to work fine at the beginning...

but, do i realy have to install all the packages again in my own 
pkg-environment that are already present in the system (installed by 
root)? I'm talking about gettext, perl, expat, python etc.
Is there any way to tell pkgsrc that thesese packages are already 
installed and could be used to solve dependencies?

i'd be glad for advices...
