I'm not sure why netbsd source being strongly integrated with pkgsrc
would be a problem, I mean, the source is strongly dependent upon
build.sh code now.
The idea of being able to install a prebuilt kernel via pkg_add seems
really cool to me, epsecially if that machine is just tracking security
criticial updates, etc.
