You're right.  I fine with your patch.

Yeah, this was intended.  I provide a version for {Free,Net}BSD on my
website.  I thought the DragonFly version doesn't need any information
about other OSs.

There could be two possibilities.  I could use the Makefile to fetch a
complete pkgsrc tree instead of the summary file or I could save the
summary file in another location.  If the user installs a pkgsrc tree
later, pkg_search prefers the tree instead of the summary file.
