Having DragonFly support the PKGSRC environment will also be beneficial
to PKGSRC as it will add another operating system and ensure even better
portability. NetBSD's support of PKGSRC will greatly reduce problems
we would otherwise face when we start working on 64 bit support.
I heartly agree, but I wonder how much it will be the "official" port
infrastructure, for example (no intend to bikeshed coloring, as long as
its green) I being a long and hardish FreeBSD user found /usr/local the
logical places for the installed ports, do we intend to default pkgsrc
packages installation to there?
