I notice that there is a /usr/local/etc/bash_completion.d/_pkg.bash file
which implements tab completion
for pkg commands.  Is there a way to make this file get picked up
by default when ports-mgmt/pkg is installed,
instead of having to edit .bashrc?

It's a minor thing, but tab completions are really nice for usability.
bash shell users can use this, but zsh also has a way to read bash
completion scripts.
