Could you wait until December?  pkgsrc isn't part of the system yet, if
you're a 1.2.x user, and I don't want to have to migrate a system to
pkgsrc until Joerg's fixes are in the pkgsrc tree.  Also, I don't know if
all the applications I'm using under ports right now have a working pkgsrc
equivalent on DragonFly, yet.

For that matter, it'd be nice to have still work, or at
least redirect.  Any person trying 1.2 right now is going to have to do
some digging to find out how everything meshes.
