Adrian Nida has written a pkgsrc howto on DragonFly wiki: You should find
it useful.

1. As Thomas already mentioned, you might want to stick with 1.2
release and then upgrade to Production/stable.

2. Yep, and you can also get (a cvs repository),
then checkout Production/stable.

Hope that helps. And sorry for a late reply, don't have as much free 
time that I used to have :(.
