If you think so then I'm sure that is the case. I do not have much of a
clue as to the internals of pkgsrc and how all the make magic hangs together.
I basically chose netbsd because that's what was used for OpenBSD/Interix,
and I figured it was essentially a workable default. But given that DragonFly
is much closer to FreeBSD than NetBSD, your suggestions makes obvious sense.
In any case I tried building with 'freebsd' instead and it does still build.

Alright. I was considering this but wasn't sure whether Dragonfly stuff was
very welcome in NetBSD gnats (since pkgsrc does not seem to have a separate
database). Should I just file future issues like this under the 'pkg' category
in NetBSD gnats then?

For now, see above. Given time I will try to learn more about pkgsrc so
that I can give intelligent feedback in the future...
Thanks a lot!
