| Your strategy will not work as expected,

In that case we need a compat package so supply the missing libraries, the
same as is done to allow binaries from older versions to keep on running.
NetBSD is supposed to be (among other things) much concerned with keeping
binary compatibility, and generally does a good job - but tends to fail when
it comes to the X related libraries.
