Not much
System: NetBSD 5.99.27 i386
I have pkgsrc from a few days ago.  I use X11_TYPE=native.

multimedia/vlc fails with the following errors from "configure":

    checking for XLIB_XCB... no
    configure: error: Package requirements (x11-xcb) were not met:

    No package 'x11-xcb' found

    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.

    Alternatively, you may set the environment variables XLIB_XCB_CFLAGS
    and XLIB_XCB_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.
    $ cd pkgsrc/multimedia/vlc
    $ head -1 Makefile
    # $NetBSD: Makefile,v 1.107 2011/02/14 19:03:18 drochner Exp $
    $ make show-var VARNAME=X11_TYPE
    $ make replace
    [see errors mentioned above]

    I see the comment "libX11 should be built with xcb enabled"
    in multimedia/vlc/Makefile, and I do have that, I think:

        $ pkg_info libX11
        Information for libX11-1.3.5:
        This is from the modular X11 project.

    It's confusing (to me) that libX11 is from pkgsrc while
    I am using X11_TYPE=native, and perhaps this has
    something to do with the problem.
