Re: pkgtools/pkg status in NetBSD with pkgsrc, does anybody use it?

Synth, imported from FreeBSD ports, works on the new pkgng format using pkg, imported from FreeBSD and superseding older pkg_* tools which can no longer be used in FreeBSD.

New package format with pkgng is not compatible with old format, and this would apply to NetBSD if using synth.
