    Hmm.  Well, the CVS vendor tag stuff has always caused me trouble, but
    I'm wondering if an even better solution would be to avoid the whole
    mess (at least for everything except GCC) and start integrating PKGSRC
    builds for the needed pieces into our buildworld.
I don't think this is a good idea at all.  For instance, take the -m enhancement for cvs, which I committed some months ago.  I doubt the pkgsrc people would pick up this patch.  Additionally, maintaining pkgsrc as a part of base makes it even more complicated and makes us more dependant on external infrastructure.  Additionally, it would increase build time (all those configures) and we would lose a big share of stability.

Actually, CVS vendor tags aren't that complicated.  I never found out with what people have the big problem.
