NetBSD sites use extensive soft links and if you look at the site with an ftp client, the links will be evident. In your case stable -> pkgsrc-2016Q3 and if you look at that directory"
Code:
ftp> pwd
257 "/pub/pkgsrc/pkgsrc-2016Q3" is the current directory.
ftp> ls
150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for '/bin/ls'.

I would actually download the latest versions, November 26, in hopes of getting any updates/bug fixes. The MD5 and SHA1 files are used to validate the files integrity. It is useful when starting out to learn how to obtain an md5sum and sha1 hash.

Pkgsrc is used for you to build your own packages and is NOT needed with pkgin. pkgin installs already built packages. The xfce4 desktop I just installed was almost entirely built with pkgin. The only package I had to build was mplayer.
