Well, you bootstrapped pkgsrc, I guess. Jeroen's question was most
probably due to the fact that the DB location is to be stored in /etc/
mk.conf. After bootstrapping, there should be a file containing the
needed settings in pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/ to be copied to /etc. There
should a message regarding this appear during bootstrap.
