Excuse my newbeeness...

I'm not able to install ports via pkg install on 11-RC3. This might be
due to the version not beeing "release" (yet) I guess... :)
if I issue a pkg install <anithing> I get

Updating FreeBSD repository catalogue...
pkg: Not Found
repository FreeBSD has no meta file, using default settings
pkg: Not Found
Unable to update repository FreeBSD
All repositories are up-to-date.
pkg: Repository FreeBSD cannot be opened. 'pkg update' required

the same if I issue "pkg update".

Is there a way to build all the ports and make them available to pkg?
Would such a thing make sense?

Thanks for any pointer,
