Can someone put these two lines in their /etc/mk.conf:


And then go to some package you want in the pkgsrc tree, and perform a:

'bmake bin-install'

This should install whatever package and its dependencies, building from
source only when the package needed isn't present as an existing binary at
one of our mirrors.  If it does or does not work, please tell me.

Make sure that you have a version of pkg_install from this year; pkg_add
-V will tell you and 'bmake install' in /usr/pkg/pkgtools/pkg_install will
upgrade it.
