What version of NetBSD are you running?  This looks very much like a
problem several of us have had: as of the latest quarterly branch,
pkgsrc uses more recent x11 pixman libraries than those provided in
the 5.0.2 base system, and while the pkgsrc pixman libraries get
pulled in automatically, some packages see the base libraries first
and try to link against them.  See the threads "Is pango still
broken?" and "Travails of the pixman upgrade." on pkgsrc-users@

The workaround is to move the pixman libraries in your base x11
installation for the duration of the package build.  I don't know that
anyone has found a proper fix except upgrading the base system to 5.1
