  It should.  I'm running gv-3.5.8 together with freetype-lib-1.3.1 and
gnome-core-1.2.3 (and all of its dependencies) without problems.

  Since NetBSD-1.5 is not out yet, I don't believe that there is an
1.5-specific pkgsrc available.  However, you can use anoncvs (instead of
ftp) to checkout the corresponding version (just make sure you have the
'cvs' package installed):

  cvs -d login

  Enter 'anoncvs' at the password prompt, then

  cvs -d checkout -r
netbsd-1-5-RELEASE pkgsrc

  (sorry for my mailer breaking this up: each 'cvs' line should be a
single line).  This should give you a new 'pkgsrc' directory in your
current directory.  Make sure, however, that you move away any old
'pkgsrc' there, or this will fail!
