That would be my thought, having tried to build X apps on OS X 10.3 a
few months back (which has similar vintage native X11), though I've
not used NetBSD-4 for a while.

Is anyone still using NetBSD-4, building X apps from pkgsrc with
X11_TYPE native, and would object to being able to build a lot more
apps, at the cost of having to build the newer X libs from pkgsrc?
