Yes, let's add it. I have been asked about it a few times outside of 
NetBSD lists too.

I understand we don't want to waste time duplicating documentation, but I 
still think the man page should be extended to be a least useful to 
novice. Pointing a beginner to our pkgsrc Guide may be overwhelming :)

I have a pkgsrc.7 that some others on some mailing list helped write.
