Please don't treat the following as an opinion whether expat should be
moved into the base set or not - it isn't - I have no opinion on that
and no basis upon which to form an opinion if I wanted to (I've just
seen the discussion drift past).
But, whatever is decided on that, will have no impact on the "problem"
reported, or not for a very long time.
If expat were to move into base, that would only be visible from NetBSD 6,
and pkgsrc is going to be supporting NetBSD 5 (which does not have expat in
base) for a long time yet (it is still going to be supporting NetBSD 4
for quite a while it seems as well,)
That means, to detect a built in expat, rather than the pkgsrc provided one,
pkgsrc is going to have to go grovelling in the X11 headers/libs for some
time into the future.
There may be other ways to fix expat to avoid needing x11-links (and thus
the appearance of requiring X11), that I don't know - if there are they'd
apply equally to a situation where expat has been moved to base, and the
current one where it is in the X sets.
