Cool!  I never get tired of hearing this. :)

I compiled X11R6 with the NetBSD/386 configuration, plus some bits and
pieces I had to add, almost completely without errors.  You do need
about five files for building the server which I wrote and which are
specific to NetBSD/Mac68k.  I'm working on IIvx ADB, now, because the
opportunity came and I couldn't pass it up, but I hope to have at least
patches against X11R6 for MacBSD out in a couple of weeks.  (It may be
even easier with a 68030 machine on which to compile instead of my
aging, decrepit Mac II.)
