Yesterday I discovered that the binary package of subversion-base that was
compiled on a system with xsrc X11 installed fails in a X11-less domU because
of it can't load

neon-0.29.0 requires expat, but hasn't recorded a dependency against the
expat package.  The reason for that is that the expat dependency is
satisfied through x11-links because xbase happens to be installed on the
compile machine.  However, neither neon nor expat nor any other prerequisites
for subversion-base require X11 libraries to work.

use netbsd-5 with xsrc x11 sets installed.
set X11_TYPE=native
cd pkgsrc/www/neon && make
It is inappropriate to add x11-links for builtins when the package Makefile
does not indicate that X11 libraries are needed.
