My concern is how pkgsrc would handle bulk installation on a bunch of
servers?  updates?  I never worked with ports before, so my questions
may be dumb, but with binary packages it's quite trivial to support a
park of servers and do updates/modification of a set of package across
these servers.  Recently, I needed to install 30+ systems in a day.  If
we had ports, would I need to build packages on each of these 30+ boxes?
