I think the legal definition of a pint is now 568ml, and not by reference to any other standard.
Exactly.
Except for milk in returnable containers and draught beer, see earlier link.

But the question is how do you define a pint?

In fact, SteveC is only partially correct - a pint is defined as 1/8 of a gallon, but a gallon is defined as 4.54609 litres.

(Until 1976 a gallon was defined as the volume of 10lb of water at 62F.)
