$NetBSD: README,v 1.19 2017/03/02 09:51:35 maya Exp $

pkgsrc is a framework for building software on UNIX-like systems.

To use, bootstrap using:
% cd pkgsrc/bootstrap/
% ./bootstrap

build packages, use:
% cd pkgsrc/category/package-name
% $PREFIX/bin/bmake install

Where $PREFIX is where you've chosen to install packages (typically /usr/pkg)

Bugs and patches can be filed in the follow link (use category 'pkg'):
https://www.netbsd.org/cgi-bin/sendpr.cgi?gndb=netbsd

To fetch the main CVS repository:
% cvs -d anoncvs@anoncvs.NetBSD.org:/cvsroot checkout -P pkgsrc

It's also possible to contribute through pkgsrc wip (work in progress), for
more information, see http://pkgsrc.org/wip/users/

Please see doc/pkgsrc.txt for information.
