think this distribution is not very good for use.
That is my take on it too. At the end ot pkgsrc_2017Q2, the builds were broken by several core packages and it has yet to be fixed. There is an lxde meta-pkg that installs cleanly but needs a special ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession file to reassign the xdg directories.

I also wonder about the pkgsrc developer environment. In my opinion, there should be a freeze on the Quarterly packages and a period of bug fixing. Users could then use packages that would not be more than 3 to 4 months out of date.
