What is in pkgsrc-current today is very close to what 2019Q4 will be.
We are chasing some issues, but things are largely stale.

That might work, but generally in terms of knowing that you are up to
date, there are sevearl approaches:

  use pbulk in a chroot.

  in a chroot, or otherwise, remove all packages and build them all from

  use pkg_rolling-replace.  You can "pkg_admin set rebuild=YES \*" to
  force everything to be rebuilt.   This sometimes doesn't work because
  packages change by moving files between packages, etc.

In that file, I made a change so that base system fontconfig won't be
used.  If you have 1.37 or later of that file, you have my change.

It is quite possible that there are various other issues in netbsd-7.
While netbsd-7 is technically considered supported in pkgsrc, a number
of things have trouble, mostly due to upstreams moving beyond netbsd-7's
compiler and other bits.   My impression is that most people that
contribute to pkgsrc have moved to 8 or 9 (or track current), so I
suspect these issues are not likely to be addressed.

Overall I would suggest that you consider updating to 8.
