Not in pkgsrc, but: I'm very happy with Blosxom. It just needs perl to run 
as a CGI from Apache (or whatever), and adding entries is done by creating 
new text files, and there's no "database" (MySQL, ...) needed. Lots of 
stuff can be done via plugins.

See for more, and my NetBSD blog at for an example.

Also, if you're frequently blogging NetBSD related things and want to get 
listed on, drop me or Kimmo a mail.
