Build a Port Without the Ports Tree
I am sure the answer is yes, but - does the same apply to pkgsrc? And if so, how? (at least point me to the documentation)

Frankly I don't know, I never tried it as I'm fairly new to NetBSD and pkgsrc. If I get some time tonight I will try to play around with it and check (I'm not home ATM).

OK, I just tested it quickly, it seems to work:
cvs co pkgsrc/mk
cvs pkgsrc/pkgtools/pkgfind
And I could compile and install the tool. Will do some more testing later.

Wow. That fit PC is awesome to put a *NIX on it. Any local store in Panamá (the country) that stocks them?

Default workaround

If you are concerned about available space on a harddrive, just run a live version off your cd-rom.

I use my OpenBSD system on my 3 gb partition without problem.
Obviously i use a window manager (icewm) and don't the fat desktop manager.
I don't use heavy file manager as nautilus or the equivalent available on kde (i use xfe).
Doing the appropriate choices is possible.

Remember only that on BSD system you should have a primary partition available.
