Yes, this looks helpful, thanks.  I'll try when I get back to NetBSD, am in 
Linux now.

Maybe I need to bootstrap too?  Pkgsrc guide seemed to suggest bootstrapping 
was for non-NetBSD only, but I see where it might be useful to choose 
directories and also get example mk.conf.

I have NetBSD 5.1_RC4 on hard disk partition and 4.0.1 on 4 GB USB stick, would 
want to use the same pkgsrc on the hard drive rather than duplicate on USB 
stick.  I get strange screen-blanking problem in 5.1_RC4, which is the reason 
for my continued interest in 4.0.1.  I could set work directory to work401 and 
work51 in NetBSD 4.0.1 and 5.1_RC4 respectively, and I don't need to keep 
distfiles in duplicate.

If vesafb stuff is commented out in kernel configuration file for 5.1_RC4, 
computer freezes immediately when I go into X, and I have to hit Reset or power 
off/power on.  

If I use vesafb stuff, screen goes blank after about one-half minute, does not 
come back in response to keyboard but does come back if I type "screenblank -u" 
at a command prompt, so I have to be sure to keep a command-prompt virtual 
terminal open at all times.  I can go into X and not get this screen-blanking 
problem, or maybe I didn't wait long enough, but then I get a blank screen 
except for a rectangular cursor when I come back to text console, so when I go 
into X, there is no going back to text console, though "shutdown -r now" works. 

I don't get this problem, or I got past it, in 4.0.1.

So that's why I might still have use for 4.0.1 on USB stick.  Or I could burn 
my bridges on NetBSD 5.x in favor of 6-current and stilluse the same pkgsrc.
