If I don't istall the bootstrap, can I use PkgNG in FreeBSD 9.1 (sparc64), it 
is a fresh install

Since FreeBSD is moving in the direction of PkgNG, I can install software with 
the ports, but registers new software with pkgng

To ensure the FreeBSD Ports Collection registers new software with pkgng, and 
not pkg_install, FreeBSD versions earlier than 10.X require this line 
in /etc/make.conf:

Well, looks like pkgng can't be installed, when I access the URL, I do not see 
a folder (freebsd:9:sparc64:64) for the sparc64 platform

Currently this site only contains pkg bootstrap files!
