I completely agree with you Roland.
It's easier for developers and users.
If a user will be perplexed about it we always have a man page, a
wiki, various IRC channels and a complete guide about pkgsrc.
However, I think it will be pretty improbable: I didn't try the new
pkg_add(1) yet but if it prints a message like the license
PKG_FAIL_REASON the user will just copy the LICENSE as is without any
