HEADS UP: FreeBSD pkgsrc binaries and manuals being moved

From: Matthew Dillon <dillon@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

    The FreeBSD packaging system binaries (and manuals) are being moved
    out of /usr/sbin and into /usr/freebsd_pkg/sbin.  People who still
    need to use the FreeBSD packaging system will have to add
    /usr/freebsd_pkg/sbin to their path.  The binaries will be left there
    through the Christmas release to provide a migration path, but will be
    removed in HEAD after the release is rolled.

    The NetBSD pkgsrc bootstrap will be integrated into the ISO for the
    Christmas release.   People building ISOs will have to have a pkgsrc
    tree broken out.  I haven't determined how much of it will be needed,
    but certainly at least /usr/pkgsrc/bootstrap will be required.

    The related commits for both these items are going in today.
