As far as I understand Luong he needs to cross compile everything.
You can't cross compile with pkgsrc.

Luong: I sugest to use ksh(1). It is part of the NetBSD base system.
ksh(1) is a bit different as bash(1), but quite similar. As a long time
bash(1) user I got used to ksh(1) quite fast. You may need to set:
        bind ^I=3Dcomplete
        set -o braceexpand
in your ~/.profile or ~/.kshrc to make ksh(1) more bash(1) like.
