Apparently the instructions in bootstrap/README.Darwin put everything
in the disk image.

I guess you would replace these:

$ sudo ./bootstrap \
    --prefix /Volumes/NetBSD/pkg \
    --pkgdbdir /Volumes/NetBSD/pkgdb

with something like this?:

$ sudo ./bootstrap \
    --prefix /Users/myhome/pkgsrc/pkg \
    --pkgdbdir /Users/myhome/pkgsrc/pkgdb


P.S: What a pity you guys had such a bad weather when you went 
to Barcelona.
