I can make some if there's a big demand.

You are talking about the XFree86 site? You shouldn't use their source
distribution, NetBSD has its own one.

Download the files "local.tar.gz", "top-level.tar.gz" and "xfree.tar.gz"
from "" and
untar them in a single directory. Afterwards build and install them
with these commands:

cd xsrc
env USE_XF86_4=yes make build
