Ok Ok, please excuse denseness:))
but it looks like I have missed something here,
some significant happening in the NetBSD world perhaps?

That machine that produced this error is `not` running
X11 modular. It's just running the old Xfree86 standard X11.
So it doesn't have X11_TYPE defined as "modular".

Question is, should it?

Does all pkgsrc expect modular X11 now?
As in it won't compile things without it?

I honestly feel like I may have missed something here.
Is it NOT OK to NOT have X11_TYPE defined as "modular"

many thanks ,
