Default Cant use add_pkg

I did an install of this weekend and followed the guide at netbsd.org/docs/guide/en/chap-boot.html so i could get started after install.

In that guide it says that i have to activate a package source with following commands:

# export PKG_PATH="ftp://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/<PORT>/<RELEASE-NUMBER>/All"
# export PKG_PATH

When its done one should be able to install software with:

# pkg_add -v softwarename

I cant find a source for 5.0.1 and the 5.0 source wont work. If i use a 5.0 source pkg_add tells me i am using the wrong platform.

I have been googling for a solution most of sunday without finding anything that helps. And those guides i find are obsolete.

Any suggestions?
