There are 3 options . One upgrade to 10.x or 11.x and ports/pkg will work . Support for the 9 series and 10.1 and 10.2 was removed from ports a few months ago . Two check out ports via svn and use the tag RELEASE_9_EOL and use that as your starting point . This is ports before the support for 9 was dropped . It's not up to date but it will work .Lastly you could use pkgsrc from netbsd not Joynet , and do a full rebuild of what you need . Pkgsrc also has a pkgsrc to ports conversion tool if you want the subsequent pkgsrc packages registered in a FreeBSD standard pkg dir . This would work if you haven't converted 9 to use pkgng .
