besides FTP and CVS, it would be nice to do an initial install of pkgsrc
from a CD, e.g. when NetBSD was installed from CD and at the end of
sysinst, pkg_install is ran.
I guess that sysinst could even provide some hints on where to get things
from, e.g. when the NetBSD sets were installed from CD hand over a path to
the CD mountpoint or ask the user to insert the right CD; when the NetBSD
sets were installed via FTP, that could be indicated too to prefer
installation over FTP.
