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

This information should help, and ought to be in the pkgsrc guide. 

I might want some more things, like C++ compiler, and cvs to keep up with pkgsrc; bzip2 and xz to extract the distfiles; file, pkg-config, ncurses, m4, or could these be built from pkgsrc?

I believe gmake would be "make" on a Linux system but must be installed as gmake on non-Linux to distinguish from BSD make.

Git has become a necessity for keeping up with various source trees.

Thanks for hints, and thanks to others who have responded.
