Is this native X or moduar/pkgsrc X?

I now have pkgsrc X, and it won't start (no screens found), with or without 
DRMKMS, regardless of driver.

Neither intel, vesa nor fbdev work at all.

I get 250 * 66 characters with DRMKMS console, compared to 80 * 25 on regular 
console, so DRMKMS makes it easier to read and respond to text email than with 
regular console.

Maybe I need to wait a few months on getting X to work in NetBSD, for 
improvements in both NetBSD system and base or pkgsrc X?
