On NetBSD-current, libX11 is built with libxcb support, so it works.

On older NetBSDs, this currently only works with modular X.

There is no x11-xcb package, it's a compile time decision for the
libX11 package.

With native X, pkgsrc tries to (or should try to) pull in an
appropriate libX11 with xcb support from pkgsrc, but is probably
doomed to fail because it also needs other X libraries which are not
linked against the pkgsrc version. Bug drochner to fix it, he did the
update that changed the dependency ;)
