The details for subscribing for the new list are up on the NetBSD.org
site, along with all the other mailing list details:
In answer to your question
PKG_OPTIONS.rt= pgsql modperl1
Should do the trick. The .frontend and .backend are just group names
and AFAIK shouldn't need to be directly accessed by you. The foo:bar
notation is just internal options.mk notation for migration of old options.
The _GROUP directive is just to ensure that a user selects one of a
number of options when building the package.
You will be able to find some more documentation on this here:
