Based on [port]ports-mgmt/pkg[/port], I run "pkg_add -r pkg" and get

Error: Unable to get [url]ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/packages-9.0-release/Latest/pkg.tbz:[/url] File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
Since my understanding is somewhat despite reading the handbook (probably missed something), can someone point me in the right direction - i.e. what are the high-level steps I need to take to install pkgng?
I notice pkg-1.0.1.tbz exists in
So I tried the stable version (pkg_add ftp:.....). Seemed to work but is this approach advisable in general?
