I just tried to use it to install dependencies for devel/mercurial.
It worked for some packages, but failed for others, say asciidoc:

$ pkg_add -V
$ cd /usr/pkgsrc/textproc/asciidoc
$ bmake bin-install
===> Binary install for asciidoc-8.1.0nb2
=> Becoming ``root'' to make su-do-bin-install (/usr/bin/su)
=> Installing asciidoc-8.1.0nb2 from /home/pkgsrc/packages/All;

Here it dropped to interactive prompt of ftp command.  If I type `exit'
it gives up and tries to build the package from source.  But I'm doing
this on DragonFly snapshot inside VMware fusion, so it may have something
to do with its NAT connection.  I'll try this on a real machine later.
