Has there been any consideration to distributing binary bootstrap kits
in the target platforms native package format? For example MacOS .pkg
or Red Hat/Fedora Core's rpm?
I do realize that just extracting the kit at / is very easy. However it
just goes that little bit more to allow pkgsrc tools to be installed
almost without thought or instructions.
