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.
