Not so, can't be so. Pkgsrc has Makefile wrappers that run the package's
own native build scripts, giving the pkgsrc user a fairly consist way to
build and install packages. If the package in question used the autotools
to create a configure script, pkgsrc runs that when you type "make".
NetBSD is a nice, stable, tractable, system. It's reasonably well
documented and generally immune to fashion, quite a good thing if you want
your hard-earned knowledge to continue to be relevant over time.
