The best thing in terms of pkgsrc, in my experience, is to install a
quarterly release. Check it out into /usr/pkgsrc/:
setenv CVSROOT anoncvs@anoncvs.NetBSD.org:/cvsroot
setenv CVS_RSH ssh
cvs -q checkout -rpkgsrc-2010Q1 -P pkgsrc
When you need to go to the next release, just edit /usr/pkgsrc/CVS/Tag and
cvs -q update -dP
