I could either try Centos 7 again and use Joyent's or Jason Bacon's
binaries, but Centos 7 is on the verge of being obsolete (not
http://netbsd.org/~bacon/auto-pkgsrc-setup defaults to using gcc7 for
everything except gcc7 & dependencies and well over 90% of pkgsrc
packages build successfully in the default configuration it creates.
I intend to continue building pkgsrc binaries for CentOS 7 until its
EOL. I'll also begin building for CentOS 8 as soon as I have the time
and the hardware.
