I decided that I wanted my computer to be more of an appliance and less of a hobby, so when NetBSD 3.0 came out, I gave up pkg_comp. Now, I just use the binary packages on ftp.netbsd.org. It's such a joy to not have to wait around for packages to build. They just install!
I would use them, but I use X.org from pkgsrc, and all of the binary
pkgs on the FTP are built with the base X11 :/.
