Fair point.  Perhaps a better solution than foreign packages is a broader effort to produce more such sets of binary pkgsrc packages and make them "official".  And provide clearer documentation on using them and more standardized installation/bootstrapping, as you have also been working on.

What resources are needed for NetBSD/pkgsrc to maintain officially blessed collections of binary packages made for a variety of other systems?
