Missing pkgconfig files.
Does NetBSD's native X11 provide xdamage.pc and xfixes.pc pkgconfig files?
If yes, then the x11-links package needs to be fixed to add (symlink)
Also libXdamage/builtin.mk and libXfixes/builtin.mk files can be created
that will create the missing pkgconfig files if needed. It is very
complicated. Some examples are x11/Xrender/builtin.mk and
Another alternative is to define XEXTENSIONS_CFLAGS in CONFIGURE_ENV to
bypass the pkgconfig checks.
