pkgsrc-2015Q2 packages for OS X now available

I'm pleased to announce that binary packages for OS X based on
pkgsrc-2015Q2 are now available.

The major changes since 2015Q1 are:

 - Packages are now installed under the /opt/pkg prefix instead of the
   previous /usr/pkg.  This ensures we are compatible with the "System
   Integrity Protection" feature introduced in El Capitan / 10.11.

 - Many package options have been tweaked in order to enable more
   features by default.

 - The signed packages support we introduced in 2015Q1 has been
   extended to HTTPS support from our download site.  Simply update
   your repository URLs to be and get end
   to end encryption and verification.

 - Many package updates and additions from the pkgsrc developers have
   taken us to nearly 12,000 binary packages.

Installation instructions for OS X are here:
