	The section of the NetBSD INSTALL documentation about
installing third party packages gives an example of using pkg_add, but
it uses sh-style "export" to set an environment variable. Seeing that
the default root shell on NetBSD is /bin/csh, it should either use csh
syntax, or mention both. Otherwise, users will be confused about why
they get "export: Command not found." when following the example.

          o   Precompiled binaries can be found at
              usually in the 1.5Y/alpha/All subdir.  You can install them with
              the following commands:

              # PKG_PATH=
              # export PKG_PATH
              # pkg_add -v tcsh
              # pkg_add -v apache
              # pkg_add -v perl

	Read the install documentation, login to your shiny new NetBSD
install as root (or su to root :), then try the above commands.
