As I now have a working dports installation (and KDE runs MUCH faster than it 
did in pkgsrc), I'm going to try to do this. First I ran "pkg add dejagnu" and 
it asked me if I meant "pkg install dejagnu". So I did that. I got a bunch of 
messages ending with

pkg: Skipping malformed dependency docbook-xml
pkg: Skipping malformed dependency docbook
pkg: package misc/kenny is built for dragonfly:3.8:* arch, and local arch is 
Incremental update completed, 0 packages processed:
20856 packages updated, 31 removed and 44 added.
pkg: No digest falling back on legacy catalog format
pkg: http://mirror- Not Found

Thinking that maybe the DNS is broken, I do this:

# host
host: not found

"pkg search host" returns packages with "host" in their name, which isn't what 
I want. How do I find which package contains the host command?

I replaced (leopard's address when it's behind zyxomma) with 
leopard's IPv6 address in /etc/resolv.conf and verify on caracal that querying 
leopard on IPv6 works; I still can't get the txz file. The other address in 
resolv.conf is apparently the nameserver on the satellite modem. IPv4 is 
working properly, so that should work.
