Yeah, good to here :-)

R6 Xserver should work even with R7 environment,
but I notice that NetBSD/alpha 6.1.3 doesn't include
X11R6 files at all so we also have to prepare other R6 files
in xbase.tgz (or xserver.tgz) archives in the past release.

The old X11R6 xbase.tgz in 1.6.2 include more necessary files like
for xkb, so extracting these files from the archive
might help:
# cd /
# ftp 
# tar -zxvpf xbase.tgz ./usr/X11R6/lib/xkb
