Re: pkg_install in base system again

No. After NetBSD installation user just runs pkg_setup in order to
initialize pkgdb and to install *recent* version of pkg_* tools from
ftp:// or http://.  pkg_setup downloads pkg_summary.gz, finds
pkg_install there, unpack it to temporary directory and cd to it, then
run ./sbin/pkg_add pkg_install-YYYYMMDD.tgz. pkg_add unpacks pkg_install
to /usr/pkg and initializes pkgdb. This is how it works.
