	The file pkgsrc/mk/mk.conf.example shows several settings that may be put
	into /etc/mk.conf, incl. references to several mirrors of ftp.NetBSD.Org.

	These entries includes settings for MASTER_SITE_LOCAL and MASTER_SITE_BACKUP
	pointing to, which in turn points to has, however, removed the NetBSD mirror some time ago,
	apparently caused by lack of disk space.
	One of three (which are not all under the control of NetBSD):

	- Reconstruct the mirror on sunsite
	- Make a new NetBSD mirror in Denmark and let reference this
	- Delete from mk.conf.example and dns.

	Of course the last alternative is not ideal :-(
