Jeremy - are these packages available in an anonymously accessible cvs 
repository somewhere?

Frankly, I'm so fed up with Linux packaging and distribution issues that 
I'd just as well not use it at all. But of course the need for Linux 
always comes up in one form or another.

Also how do you deal with packages that would be part of the "base" 
"comps" "text" "etc" etc. sets in NetBSD (i.e. the stuff in /usr/src) 
and the kernel sources?

This is a very interesting concept - a potential pkgsrc/Linux 
distribution, perhaps? It would be a dream come true.
