The current web2c version (6.something) will compile without any problems
under NetBSD. You can compile it right out of the box, but if you want to
have a nice installation, you will need some time to set all the pathes.
This version can be found on the usual CTAN servers. Take a look at
ftp.shsu.edu tex-archive (USA)
ftp.tex.ac.uk tex-archive (England)
ftp.dante.de tex-archive (Germany)
