you should have it in /usr/lib/ and it's shipped with NetBSD
itself (in the "base" set), so there is no pkgsrc package providing it.

That's the version of the kernel. Is your userland maybe older, i.e. have
you updated the kernel without updating userland? 
pkgsrc can't deal with that situation yet, and assumes that the kernel
version which can be easily retrieved from the system matches the userland.
The library was introduced at Feb 15, 2004, so if your userland is older than
this date you have to update it.
