pkgsrc connects those two.
And if it's as the package management system will the pkgview enabled
by default ?
Isn't that a build option for every package?
I don't know I can only quote that from $NetBSD: PKGVIEWS_UG,v 1.2

Next you will need to add the following line to /etc/mk.conf:
PKG_INSTALLATION_PREFS= pkgviews overwrite
This creates pkgviews packages instead of overwrite packages for any
packages that support it. The packages that do support pkgviews
can be identified by searching the package Makefile for the
PKG_INSTALLATION_TYPES= overwrite pkgviews
So it's a build option but the bootstrap doesn't enable that option by
and without that pkgsrc doesn't fulfill the goal of a package management
Probably I'm worng with that but I want to know
