 Some further poking around into the Perl script which fails in
 NetBSD 2.0 but ran in NetBSD 1.6.1 reveals that the problem has to do
 with the module below...
 use Tk::DropSite;
 ...and in particular with the routine below...
 # Accept drops from an external application
 $nb->DropSite(-dropcommand => \&handleDND,
                -droptypes   => ($^O eq 'MSWin32' or ($^O eq 'cygwin' and
                                $Tk::platform eq 'MSWin32')) ? ['Win32'] :
                                [qw/KDE XDND Sun/]);
 ...which, if I take out the 'KDE' from above, then the script
 will load and run but behave badly. By behaving badly, I mean it will
 open files but display strange character-groups for every line break.
 So perhaps KDESite is part of the Tk module which was present in the
 older version and missing in the new? And, perhaps it is needful for
 the Tk::DropSite module to work on NetBSD? Just a guess...
 Hope that helps,
