Very interesting info, thank you! Does it mean that I
need to build X from source too (I'm currently runing
Xfree 4.2 which came with NetBSD 1.6)?

BTW I noticed some system apps (like pkg_delete and
pkg_add) behaving strangely and dumping core. Then I
learned that in 4th or 5th of January there were some
big kernel changes by Jaromir Dolecek. Maybe it was
just a wrong time to update and something is broken in
my system. I'm building new current now. Will see if
it helps.
