Urk, I wasn't aware that 'pkg_add -r' was a FreeBSDism.  It's
been awhile since my NetBSD box has seen action after a lightning
storm took out the HD that I can't afford (right now) to replace.

Since you obviously have a NetBSD box and I don't, how about posting
instructions that do work for NetBSD instead of just pointing out
nits in mine?
