bootstrapping on an older NetBSD without breaking existing installed pkgs?


I have an older NetBSD box that is due for upgrading, but it's not going to happen for a few months yet, and it's got pkgsrc pkgs installed on it that I would like to not break!
It's NetBSD 5.2.2 amd64

I understand that in order to continue to use pkgsrc on this older NetBSD it will need to be a bootstrapped pkgsrc rather than the vanilla pkgsrc that I have used in the past. Mainly, AFAICT, it's issues with newer pkgsrc not liking the older NetBSD make. bmake seems to work, but there's some inconsistencies, and just making make be a symlink to bmake is a little scary :)

Best procedure to use? Short of upgrading everything to 7.1 that is ... it's on the list!

Thank you,
