Description

Along with [https://mnx.atlassian.net/browse/OS-8394|https://mnx.atlassian.net/browse/OS-8394|smart-link], it would be great if pkgsrc could re-bootstrap itself while keeping existing packages.

Tested out the updates to the script on an existing SmartOS host running joyent_20220714T060459Z and it worked for me, didn’t clobber existing install unless I ran with --clean and in which case it kept my existing packages.
