I have no strong opinion here but I think running pkg_setup
is a trivial operation. I don't see reasons for additional set
and modifying sysinst. At least for now.
Also idea is to always use a recent version of pkg_install.

- reconfigure bulk builds for all suported NetBSD to use
  pkg_install from /usr/pkg/sbin instead of /usr/sbin.

- reimplement /usr/sbin/pkg_* tools as

  /usr/pkg/sbin/pkg_xxx "$@"

  in netbsd-{4,5,5-1} branches and make minor releases.

I think this would be enough.
