This definitely shouldn’t be a one man project, and there should be an interest
from the community :)

It always brakes the same not matter which operation i’m doing. Here’s the output: It includes os, cpu, etc details as well.

( leads there too). Should i try latest stable stock pkgsrc tree instead?
I don’t know a reason why they keep that tree. Hadn’t they committed their patches
upstream? BTW, i haven’t noticed any special qnx workarounds for packages i’ve
