Not saying you're wrong in thinking that pkgsrc should be supporting
and targeting 9.x instead of 9.0, but this seems different from what
I thought was being targeted, so it would be great if that could be
documented somewhere.

I don't understand this statement.  Say a new function were added to
a 9.3 userland library that didn't exist in 9.0, and a pkgsrc package
that used that new function were built against a 9.3 userland, then
the resulting pkgsrc binary or library wouldn't work on a 9.0 userland
because the function that was added to 9.3 doesn't exist in 9.0.
