I have several servers, some 9.1, 9.2, 10.0
all nagging about the deprecated package system.
So I've bitten the bullet and am converting to the new pkg system.
The notes for conversion indicate you must add "WITH_PKGNG=yes" to
make.conf. Also done.

On a new/fresh install, V10, should a person immediately place
"WITH_PKGNG=yes" in the make.conf ? And then is it not required
to run pkg2ng ? Or is it implied? It seems not, but I cannot find
documentation in this respect.
