pkgsrc -- NetBSD packages collection (framework for third-party software)
The NetBSD Packages Collection (pkgsrc) is a framework for building and
maintaining third-party software on NetBSD, DragonFly and other UNIX-like
systems. It is used to enable freely available software to be configured
and built easily on supported platforms.
Tools are available to install ready-to-use packages and to perform vari-
ous administrative tasks for the package system.
For building packages from source, /usr/Makefile offers a number of tar-
gets to checkout and update the pkgsrc and pkgsrc-wip trees. `cd /usr;
make help' gives a quick overview.
Note that due to compatibility issues bmake(1) has to be used instead of
make(1) for pkgsrc related tasks.
