    On the Wiki pkgsrc page the instruction is given after doing the bootstrap
   cp work/mk.conf.example /etc/mk.conf

    However the message which comes on the screen after this step with a
current DragonFly and current pkgsrc is
   cp work/mk.conf.example /usr/pkg/etc/mk.conf

   Which is correct for DragonFly ? 
The pkg_chk script (part of the pkgsrc tools) seems to be hard-wired
to look in /etc, so for that reason it's a bit easier to put it there.
Otherwise you'll need to edit pkg_chk every time it's updated (like
I do ;o)
Also, the pkgsrc version of make, called bmake, needs this patch:  Apply the
patch before running (or re-running) bootstrap.
Joerg has a number of DFly fixes for pkgsrc packages (some of which
are already out of date) in the same directory.  You might want to
take a look at them.
