  | I've just installed pkg_comp on a 2.0G NetBSD. I am trying to compile

  | pkg_add: Package 'sudo-1.6.8pl5.tgz' OS mismatch
  | pkg_add: NetBSD/i386 2.0G (pkg) vs. NetBSD/i386 2.0 (this host)

You need to tell pkg_comp to use libkver and have a set of genuine
2.0 release tarballs for it to use (I'd guess that you have the latter,
but haven't done the former).

How to do this is in the pkg_comp man page.
