Any system that does have its db in /usr/pkg/pkgdb is - due for migration - until then, the admin is responsible for setting PKG_DBDIR in mk.conf, /etc/pkg_install.conf and /usr/pkg/etc/pkg_install.conf The basic problem is that we can't change code on NetBSD 9.0 systems that people are not updating along the stable branch. Personally, I don't think it's ok not to update along stable branches; that's how you get security fixes and bugfixes. But we have clear instructions for what to do, and have had those instructions for well over a year.
