Re: pkgsrc on Linux, how to get started and distinguish packages from base system?

IMHO, pkgsrc on Linux is not perfect, as most packages have been
tested mainly on NetBSD. You can follow pkgsrc-bulk, just to give you
an idea of what builds and what doesn't.
In my recent bulk-builds, it works almost as well on Linux as on NetBSD:
This is using a modified mk.conf (generated by auto-pkgsrc-setup) to
utilize pkgsrc gcc7 for all builds except itself. Without that, there
would be many more failures due to upstream incompatibility with gcc48
(the RHEL7 native compiler).
I do see occasional annoying breakage, e.g. the latest binutils commit
broke it for RHEL7. We mostly rely on quarterly releases, though, and
most of these issues get fixed during a freeze.
