What is the value or URL for PKG_PATH used to inform NetBSD 6.0.1 where to download binary packages from? There seems to be a change in both servers as well as the path or directory layout for the packages directory. I have tried and failed to figure it out. I am using NetBSD on an i386 architecture.

This should be answered autoritatively at netbsd.org. What makes you think we here know better? –  vonbrand Feb 11 '13 at 3:18

The PKG_PATH is ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/i386/6.0/All/

(stackexchange won't let me enter a short answer, so here goes)

http://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/pkgsrc/packages/$(uname -s)/$(uname -m)/$(uname -r|cut -f '1 2' -d.)/All

The above code should work for every version of NetBSD you have.
