pkgsrc can go anywhere you like; it's the "src" tree that has restrictions.
As I said before, it's not unreasonable to expect anything residing
underneath "src" to be compiled with the same methodology as the rest of the
NetBSD base system source tree.
pkgsrc is *NOT* a component of "src" and should not reside under "src".
This is not an articfact of the new toolchain -- it's just something that
people have lucked out on in the past. I've specifically never put "pkgsrc"
under "src" because I knew from the start that is would be a _broken_ setup
if done that way.
so, why have we been telling people it's OK to put pkgsrc under src
for N years?
while i agree with what you're saying, the fact is that there are
going to be a bunch of people who have things setup this way.
