No objection from me, no way could I use pkgtools/tinderbox-dragonfly.

I tried live USBs of DragonFly made from downloads from, and 
have given up trying to get anything useful (OpenBSD too).

I couldn't read DragonFly file system from FreeBSD, NetBSD or Linux, and 
DragonFly couldn't read anything on my 3 TB GPT-partitioned hard disk.
