Why 5 GB is too small? :-O
Of course, it is virtual disk as created by VBox. VBox suggested 2GB
which I increased to 5 GB. pkgsrc is placed withing /usr directory
what one of the pictures clearly show (/usr = 3GB size, 1.4 GB Used,
1.5 GB Avail).

Evidently I have gotton not enough space but I wouldn't be so sure the
"installer is doing the best", just contrary.
