Because .... and because users of the port haven't contributed the
code to make X work better, etc.
NetBSD is a user-supported system. Avalon and NASA Ames are users of
the system, and they've been bloody good about contributing to its
development. (CMU was also bloody good about contributing to
NetBSD/alpha's development, especially since they never really used it
for much, as far as I know! 8-)
That is, of course, only my opinion, which doesn't count for much
anymore since i'm no longer the port maintainer. 8-)
