Default Need help-binary package install

Hello, I’m a newbie in netbsd. I have just installed it and now I have a problem to add additional software. I want to see mc and xfce working on my system, so firstly I tried to install mc via pkg_add from /pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/i386/5.0/All/ or from/pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/i386/5.0_2009Q2/All/. I do not know about the difference (I installed netbsd 5.0.1 on my laptop).
The first package is mc of cause just to see a 2 panel file manager not a command prompt.
When I start installation from /i386/5.0 like this:
# pkg_add  -v mc
or like this:
# pkg_add  -v mc-4.6.1nb4
It start to install it, but it takes ~1,5 h and it finished with:
Directory ‘/usr/pkg/lib/gio/modules’ disappeared, skipping
pkg_add: Can’t install dependency glib2>=2.14.3
pkg_add: 1 package addition failed.
#mc gives nothing.
After 2 days of this I tried to download all the packages from the official ftp pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/i386/5.0 to use it locally, but it was impossible (only 20-70kbp/s with a 30Mb/s band width). Secondly I tried to find some mirrors with binaries but I found only compressed sources.

Please help me! I do not know what also can be done to install some programs, graphical interface etc on the netbsd.
