There's a big difference between shipping pkgsrc with a release, and
creating binary packages using the contents of pkgsrc _for_ a release.
I agree with Jason that the former is unreasonable, since pkgsrc will
spontaneously break over time.
The latter, however, is something which definitely should be done.
Users shouldn't have to compile _anything_ to install binary packages.
