PkgNG is not a good idea for a PBI, since it really should be integrated 
into the base system to work fully. Also, if you uninstall the PBI for 
PkgNG, you will still be left with a system completely dependent upon it 
because it destroys the old pkg options when you perform the conversion.

As such, this should be left to a system installation, not a PBI.
