Have you tried using the official 9.1 repository with pkgin? It appears that's what I'm using.
http://cdn.netbsd.org/pub/pkgsrc/package...64/9.1/All

Jun Ebihara (NetBSD developer) has an unofficial repository for -current at
http://cdn.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/misc/ju...2020-08-22
But I couldn't get that to work with pkgin. The directory structure is incomplete.

BTW, there is no complete repository, (you probably already expect that) so you'll end up building some things anyway. If you've got the time to do it, you can automatically download binaries for the parts of what you're building, which exist. Don't ask me how though. I've done it but can't really explain how I did it. If I do it again, I'll end up figuring out how to do it all over again.

Thanks for the link.

Sadly, the 9.1 ones won't work properly if you have anything that links to the system. For example, 9.1 nano requires libmagic.so.6, but libmagic.so.7 is shipped with the 9.99.77 image.

I'll probably just wait for NetBSD 10 to come out, or do a full bulk build if I'm able to upgrade my workstation next year.
