See the note in the pkgsrc/tnftp/Makefile.
tnftp is from and that is based 
on code from NetBSD itself.

As for pax, I don't think there is a recent "autoconf" version tarball. 
But the rest of the source is from NetBSD itself.

So the correct way to update pax (and probably tnftp) is to usually start 
with the latest source from NetBSD's CVS.
