Subject: pkgtools/x11-links on a vanilla installation: missing X headers

I've got a fresh installation of NetBSD, without any X11 stuff, with empty
/etc/mk.conf. While trying to compile wip/d4x (needs gtk2, which needs
Xrender, which needs x11-links) I get error while building
pkgtools/x11-links ("x11-links requires X headers to be installed"). Well, I
know how to fix it on that install, no problem :) but IMO we should consider
x11-links or some pkgsrc parts to automatically install pkgsrc X11 packages
(at least the libraries), when no X11 devel libs is available in system.

Take care,
