Stick to the quarterly releases of pkgsrc whenever possible - going to
master for pkgsrc means that you could potentially be trying to build
packages right in the middle of a transition from one supporting lib to
another.  png, for instance, is required by thousands of packages. 
Quarterly releases should have a clean dependency list so you don't end up
needing, say, jpeg-7 and jpeg-8 at the same time.
