Correct. You need both to be able to use "./build.sh -x".

I don't understand this question. What do X11 sources have to do
with NetBSD-current kernels?
NetBSD 2.0 and above all use the X11 reachover build framework. So you'll
need "/usr/src/x11" and "/usr/xsrc" for any of those release to use
You can however still build X11 with the "native build" by using
"make build" as "root" in "/usr/xsrc" which does not require
"/usr/src/x11". This method does however not support cross building.
