Packages for FreeBSD-4 have a '.tgz' extension. FreeBSD-5 uses
'.tbz'. However, that may change in the future permitting both
compression scheemes to be used with one or both of those system
versions, so don't necessarily rely on the distinction.
Generally the way you tell which OS version a package is for is by the
directory heirarchy on the FTP servers. eg:
will get packages suitable for FreeBSD 4.x. See the blurb that gets
preinted out when you go to:
