I have built a set of more than 17,000 x86_64 binary dports packages
with poudriere.

They are available from this URL:
and of course need a DragonFly-3.3 system with pkg to be used.

After adding this line to /usr/local/etc/pkg.conf
  PACKAGESITE: http://pkg.wolfpond.org/dragonfly:3.4:x86:64

it's possible to use pkg update / pkg install etc... to install or update
packages from the repository.

The pkg(8) manpage explains nicely the different pkg commands.

A few instructions for people wanting to install pkg:

* Install dports:
  cd /usr
  Run make dports-create or make dports-download

* Install the pkg port :
  cd /usr/dports/ports-mgmt/pkg && make install
  make clean

Move /usr/pkg out of the way first; even though dports and pkgsrc packages
use different installation prefixes, mixing them can lead to various issues.

The immense majority of these packages has not been tested, use at your own
risk. Bugs can be reported to http://github.com/jrmarino/DPorts .
