I don't know when the 2009Q3 release will happen - month end, I thought. 
That plus a week for building new packages would push us out too far. 
We've never defined any gating condition for what happens with pkgsrc - as
in, is there a certain number or set of packages that must build for a
release to be OK?  (not necessarily a question to answer in this thread)

The 2.3.2 packages I have built/am building now should work for 2.4; we
can start right off the bat with those, build new 2.4 packages, and shift
to pkgsrc-2009Q3 packages when they are available and built without
holding the release up, by shifting the links on avalon.
