What about having packages that need expat use pkgsrc dependency by
default. Seems liks this is a common problem.
Also, it would be nice if packages were built and provided using modular X
without any X base sets installed.
Also pkg_add should complain about this at install time.
I think pkgin can detect and warn about this problem.
