Did you look at https://wiki.netbsd.org/pkgsrc/how_to_upgrade_packages/ ? I am not saying it's perfect, but specific complaints with fixes are helpful. > It seems that when moving from yyyy-Qx toward a yyyy-Qx_1 branch "pkg_chk > -u -s" should update all the installed package if needed. In theory, yes. It will remove many packages and rebuild them. Have a look at pkg_rolling-replace. It has different failure modes than pkg_chk -u, and you may or like them better. Also look at pkgin, but you are talking about building from source. > But I could not find the information on how to update the bootstrap itself > and the associated makefile fragment.

E.g., I run pkgsrc on mac, and my /usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf has a March 2014 mod date. If you do redo the boostrap, it is probably best to rebuild all packages From scratch afterwards.
