 Actually, it doesn't.   That file isn't in the NetBSD 4 branch at all,
 and pkgsrc is supposed to support NetBSD 4, but worse, it isn't in any
 released version of NetBSD (it will be in the next version of NetBSD 5,
 and I assume probably the next 5.0.n as well, though it doesn't appear
 as if there has yet been a pullup to the netbsd-5-0 branch, but it is 
 not in anything that is available now).
 To fix this, you'd need to add NOT_FOR_PLATFORM and exclude every
 currently released NetBSD version ... or
 You could just ship a copy of the updated link_elf.h file and use it
 when needed, on any system - assuming it is purely the include file
 that is needed, and the underlying libraries do the right thing even
 when they were built with an earlier include file version, which given the
 nature of the change, seems likely.
