Me again...I left out some pertinant info (the coffee hasnt kicked in yet :P) Yeah, I'm running NetBSD, 1.6.2. I just found documentation that pointed to the FreeBSD docs for more info...and when I RTFM for FreeBSD, I see theres a "-r" option for pkg_add that will fetch the correct everything for my package (right?). Looks like I may have answered my own question. I'll try this option tonight. Sorry for wasting your time!
