It appears some type of formatting changes were also done, so the
differences are a lot larger and harder to compare together.

Thanks for working on this.

It might be easiest to commit this small parts at a time.

Also instead of pointing to a singel package download location maybe point 
to the mirrors webpage (and that will get rid of the typo for the user 
name there at the same time).

I think the documentation for using pkgsrc should be simplified and just 
cover common tasks. And then point to the pkgsrc Guide itself for more 
details. If the pkgsrc Guide needs work, then submit improvements for it.
I think it will be easier in the long run versus working on different 
documents covering the same thing.
