bin-install test

: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.

    It has to be /usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf now.  /etc/mk.conf is obsolete and
    pkgsrc no longer parses it.

    When I stuck the lines in /usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf it did work, but this
    isn't the best test since my machines are on the same LAN as pkgbox.
