netbsdnoob There's a work arround if you'd like.
I don't know what's the recommended way but, this is how I did it when I wanted a more recent version of something that's in the main tree. I don't do this anymore, as I'm running 9.99.82 and pkgsrc-current but,
I copy the package from pkgsrc-current into the wip repo and build it there, remove the installed version and install the one that I built. That way pkgin will recognize the installed version as higher than the available on the binary repo and won't try to update it or, refresh it.
