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!
