The average user will probably not build packages from source.

However, it's easy to do and it can be done even when packages have already been pre-installed on the system.

You may edit or add new repo configuration files as necessary. The normal use case is that someone builds specific packages (e.g.

It uses a a separate location for repository configuration at /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/ directory.

For fresh installations, the file /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/sample is copied to /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/df-latest so that pkg(8) works out of the box.

The files ending in the ".sample" extension are ignored; pkg(8) only reads files that end in ".conf" and it will read as many as it finds.
