Getting dports without pkg installed


I pointed out in my converting-to-dports post from yesterday that I had to download dports and build pkg by hand in order to install binary packages.  This was because my DragonFly system was upgraded from 3.2 to 3.4 and therefore didn’t have pkg installed.

John Marino has added a ‘pkg-bootstrap’ option to /usr/Makefile, for fixing exactly that problem.  It downloads a static version of pkg, which then lets you upgrade to the full pkg and install binaries as you’d expect.
