If you click on the two links above, you will see that your link is a deadend. Clicking on the second link shows a list of packages one of which is pkgin.
Packages are specific to the NetBSD Release and the pkgsrc version. Every quarter a new version of pkgsrc is released. These are the currently available pkgsrc versions for the amd64 architecture. I copied them from

pkgsrc2016Q4 was just released and many packages do not presently build. I would recommend retrieving pkgin from the 7.0_2016Q3 repository. When pkgsrc_2016Q4 is deemed ready, the developers will change the links so that you can easily update. Presently 7.0 -> 7.0_2016Q3. When Q4 is ready the link will be 7.0 -> 7.0_2016Q4.
