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 :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot login
Enter 'anoncvs' at the password prompt, then
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot checkout -r
(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!
