I use pkgsrc extensively on CentOS and my take on avoiding duplication

I also want my pkgsrc installations to be completely self-reliant to
avoid unpleasant surprises, so I always set
in my mk.conf.
To avoid leakage issues, I actually build a full set of binary packages
in a minimal chroot, and only build from source on a production system
if I need an optimized or customized build.
That's really good advice, thanks!
BTW, my binary packages and bootstrap kits are publicly available here:
I'm still working out the final details for managing and distributing
the -current packages prefixed to /usr/pkg. Like the quarterly
packages, the source tree will be kept in sync with the binary packages
so you can freely choose between a binary package or customized build
from source. Once I have a stable system in place I intend to update
them fairly regularly.
