:Hmm... upgrading from 1.2 to 1.4 does not seem to bring in those tools. 
:Should it?

    No, it doesn't.  We'd have to adjust make upgrade to check for and
    provide targets to bring in the tools.  The pkgsrc tools are actually
    built by nrelease and not by buildworld/installworld.

    It's a bit of a hack.  I agree we need to better-integrate the pkgsrc
    tools.  I am considering bringing in just the bootstrap and related
    required tools into our CVS tree for just that purpose.  We would
    keep them 100% synchronized, but it would remove the need to separately
    fetch the pkgsrc bootstrap and related packages.
