Though shallst never work as root unless absolutely neccessary.
cvs and git most likely do not call for root.

I am sorry, but if you want to write to /usr/pkgsrc you need root,
don't you? Otherwise you have to "chown" the whole tree to your
regular user.


For the systems that I use pkgsrc and that I actually do have root privileges, I have /usr/pkgsrc as a symlink somewhere to my $HOME.
On the other systems I just enjoy that pkgsrc can be anywhere,
and even used without root privileges for most things.
