Thing 1:

I've finally almost got a 2.7 build of pkgsrc-2010Q1 complete, so I'm
going to shift the default pkg_radd target to point at it for each
architecture within the next 24 hours.

Thing 2:

Is anyone still using DragonFly systems older than 2.4?  I have old
aliases for the original pkg_radd path on avalon, and if they are unused,
I'd like to dump them.  This is a cosmetic change, so it's not that

Thing 3:

A project for anyone that wants it: pkg_search will find listed packages
in pkg_summary that did build, but they won't be available through
pkg_radd because the package has some restriction on being distributed
from the software creator.  Changing pkg_search and pkg_radd to explain
this discrepancy would be helpful, instead of just having pkg_radd fail to
find it as it does now.
