    How do you install them? I get errors when I do a pkg_add. Do you just extract them to /usr/pkg?

    You have to install the pkgsrc tools, as they aren’t in the current release – there’s a tutorial on doing this on wiki.dragonflybsd.org. once you have the pkgsrc version of pkg_add, you can just supply a URL, as in

    /usr/pkg/pkg_add http://www.gobsd.org/pkgsrc/foo.bz2
