Default can't setup PKG_PATH after install of 5.5

Hello
I have never used a bsd family system before.
I am to the point of setting PKG_PATH in order to install all the other programs like a decent graphical browser.
Here is my PKG_PATH, feel free to correct qqbecause I could not see the errs myself :
PKG_PATH=ftp://ftp.irisa/fr/pub/OpenBSD/5.5/packages/amd64/;ftp://ftp.arcarcane-networks.fr/pub/...OpenBSD/amd64/
But the console tell me this :
ksh:/root/profile[22]: ftp://ftp/ftp.arcarcane-networks.fr/pub/OpenBSD/amd64/: not found
ksh:/root/profile[22]: ftp://ftp/ftp.fr.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/amd64/ : not found
despite having read the man pages, I can't get ksh redirect the error output and standard output on the same file. otherwise I would I post here the file.
essentialy pkg_add tell me that it can't found the first two adresses, but ignore the third. I'll post the file if you can give a command to past directly

Thanks

A lot of syntax errors and misspelt URLs there.

Choose a mirror: http://www.openbsd.org/ftp.html#ftp

Read FAQ 15: http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq15.html#PkgMgmt

Yes, your syntax is incorrect. The OpenBSD project has all mirrors use the same folder structure.
One way to verify your mirror and pull the path is to use the built-in ftp(1) client in a terminal. Use the cd (change directory command) command to change to the desired package directory. The pwd (present working directory command) will echo the path to the packages working directory. This can be copy'd n pasted into the PKG_PATH declaration in your `/.profile

Also see this example at M:tier.

As a bonus, when you install OpenBSD, if you choose to install sets over http then your system will remember which mirror you used and set PKG_PATH for you so you don't have to do it manually (unless you really want to).

I observe that for servers such as ftp.irisa.fr whose response is rather slow to make the content of /pub/OpenBSD/5.5/packages/ appear,
is seen as empty by pkg_add, so by the ftp built-in command.
Can I set higher the delay latency ?

If your response time to a particular mirror is that bad, you should choose a different mirror.

well, it's done. I reinstalled so that all the config be done.
First : whereis is PKG_PATH written when we install the sets through http ? I thought I could modify the default PKG_PATH after the installation, but if there are any I'll keep doing gross syntax errors !

One of the install routines I found and followed had the information in root's .xinitrc:

Code:
export PKG_PATH="ftp://ftp.openbsd.com/pub/OpenBSD/5.5/packages/${uname -m}"
As I am new to OpenBSD, I'm not sure if that is the koshur way to accomplish this; however, it seems to be working for my install.

Why not read the documentation?
