DESCRIPTION
     The NetBSD Packages Collection (pkgsrc) is a framework for building and
     maintaining third-party software on NetBSD and other UNIX-like systems.
     It is used to enable freely available software to be configured and built
     easily on supported platforms.

     Tools are available to install ready-to-use packages and to perform
     various administrative tasks for the package system.
