        It appears as if sysutils/tpb (tpb-0.6.1nb4) (which doesn't seem
        to have been touched in any serious way since Feb 2007) has
        grown out of sync with x11/xosd upon which it depends.

        I'm using NetBSD 4.0 release, via pkg_comp with libkver, but I
        doubt that is in any way relevant to this problem.   I also use
        pkgsrc modular xorg instead of NetBSD 4.0's x* sets, that's also

        In this environment, building sysutils/tpb produces ...

        Pkgsrc installed x11/xosd as a dependency, which
        found ...

        and which includes ...


        2.2.14 should certainly be > 0.7.0 !

        The config test program that decides that xosd isn't
        installing a suitable version is ...

                    xosd* t = xosd_init("font", "colour", 0, XOSD_top, 0, 0);
; return 0; }

        xosd has been updated much mroe recently than tpb, it seems as
        if tpb has bitrotted.   It either needs upgrading (I see doc/TODO
        has tpb-0.6.4 listed as something to work on), or just deleting.
        The last real work on xosd seems to be Feb 2009 - 7 months ago,
        so I suspect tpb has been broken, without complaints, all this time.
        I guess no-one really cares about thinkpad magic keys...
