The NetBSD instance that we are using (ami-569ed93c) has *pkg_add(1)* to
install different packages.

You just need to export a few env vars first to properly download the
binaries from the ftp server:

$ *PATH="/usr/pkg/sbin:$PATH"*$
*export PATH PKG_PATH*

Then you can install packages like the aws-cli (not sure if this is
required for us in our makefiles):

$ *pkg_add py37-awscli # it's the python 3.7 version*$ *which

I also have a quick question too, are we allowed to use the AWS Python
SDK boto3?
It facilitates a lot of the instance/volume management, not sure if
this is considered "cheating".
