It means you cannot download a pre-compiled package for pkgng at the
moment, so, yes, it affects the way /usr/sbin/pkg works.

However, there's a relatively easy workaround if you have the ports
installed: just compile and install ports-mgmt/pkg from source.  On
10-CURRENT you'll have to temporarily modify /etc/make.conf to switch
back to pkg_tools, compile and install pkg, then follow the same
instructions as for setting up pkgng on other branches (edit
/etc/make.conf, setup ${LOCALBASE}/etc/pkg.conf, run pkg2ng).
