I think using pkgsrc would be good. The DFly developer community is
quite small, and pkgsrc can avoid a lot of duplicated work. The NetBSD
people seem to be quite open to enhancements and suggestions, and I'm
sure they'll accept patches as long as they fit into their framework.

Although there's still room for improvement, I have to say I've been
using pkgsrc on NetBSD and Solaris for some years and it's excellent.

Perhaps the question is, if Matt's idea of VFS-backed ports system is
still in the roadmap.
