You could also just compile it from source, I've been using it since
NetBSD 1.6 days and I'm pretty sure it compiles cleanly. (or at least
3.80 did, I'm sure 3.81 will be fine.)

You might want to pass '--program-prefix=g' to the configure script,
otherwise it will just build as 'make', however by default it
installes into /usr/local/bin so you can either just rename it after
install, or symlink as required.
