I am guessing that the ncftp configure (if it exists) or Makefiles (or
whatever) detect the location of manual pages directory differently.

You may be able to workaround this by creating a symlink from
/Volumes/NetBSD/pkg/man to /Volumes/NetBSD/pkg/share/man.

(This reminds me: it might be nice to have a pkgsrc setting for where the
man directory is.)
