You can use pkg_add -r or you can download the latest ports tree.
All ports/packages that are availible do not come on the CD, as we have
close to 10,000 active ports.

you might try "pkg_add -r msn-py"
if that doesnt work go on the ftp and find the exact name of the package.

downloading the latest ports tree will be useful if you are going to install
many applications.  This is all detailed at .
