Make sure you have pkgsrc extracted under /usr

1) cd /usr/pkgsrc/meta-pkgs/kde3
2) make
3) make install

This will install KDE 3 (depending how up-to-date your pkgsrc is) on your
system.  To create binary packages of KDE for other machines to use (using
the pkg_add command), you need to do 'make package'.

See for more
information on how to do this.  The NetBSD FTP may not always have binary
packages available, so it's always a good idea to build them yourself.
