Sorry, yes. You prepare an OpenSSL certificate for it. pkg_install.conf
points to the certificate used for validation (see pkg_add(8).
pkg_admin sign-package is used to created them.

As discussed, the pkg_view and linkfarm script are no longer installed.
The @option preserve tag in PLISTs isn't supported.
Conflicts in the PLIST are checked before and installation in refused if
they happen. This depends on an up-to-date database (pkg_admin rebuild).

I think those are all user-visible changes.
