Well, "native" implies the system X11 on more than just NetBSD, e.g.
OpenWindows on Sun and X11R6 on IRIX. The remaining values for X11_TYPE
are to match pkgsrc package names. The values that X11_TYPE takes
are in line with similar *_TYPE values used in pkgsrc, so I think they
are well-named for pkgsrc's purposes.
