Yes. The 2.2 version of pkg_radd went to pkgbox.dragonflybsd.org, which
had a script to redirect the request to any of a number of pkgsrc binary
mirrors. It worked relatively well for an ad hoc solution, but not all of
them were always up to date.
pkg_radd requests to pkgbox.dragonflybsd.org now redirect to the
appropriate directory on avalon.dragonflybsd.org, which has a (as much as
I can get it) complete package set and much better bandwidth.
