[csw-maintainers] pkgutil version updates on the mirror roots? Make pkgutil package ARCH=all?

pkgutil was placed straight at the mirror root a while ago to facilitate
downloading, but it doesn't seem to get updates. The version floating
around [1,2] is 1.5, most recent pkgutil is 1.7. Could this please be
fixed (and be kept in sync in the future pleeeaase :).

Furthermore, could pkgutil be made an ARCH=all package, so that there is
just _one_ direct link that one can point new users to and not a
platform specific one (i know about uname -p, still it just makes things
more straightforward)?

I see, the package contains a wget which is platform specific. Couldn't
we just include two wgets (wget.i386, wget.sparc)? From what i remember,
that is the same approach Sun uses for its explorer package.
