I'd like to point out that the other way, running a "kdebase" package
built against netbsd-1-5 under XFree86-4.x, should "just work",
because the package will still depend on the rman package (which
installs to ${LOCALBASE). The two "rman"s don't overwrite each other's
files, and the "DEPENDS=rman-3.0.9:..." is tightly coupled to the
definition of ${RMAN} in, so you can't really go wrong.
