I poked around in cvsweb but I couldn't find any example of a program NetBSD 
packages for external use.  Could you name one or two?

I am willing to use autotools if people tell me it's a better idea.  Is it a 
better idea?

Note that I don't want spend too much time on window(1) or to take on 
maintainership.  If I send just a source code patch, a, and a to the NetBSD project, will someone else handle all the rest?
