1.) You cannot turn X11 into a package.
2.) There is no need to reinstall NetBSD, this is not the usual crappy
Linux distribution. The system I'm using right now was installed
in 1996 and only updated afterwards.
3.) I suppose Matthias Drochner will commit this fix soon so that the
XFree86 binaries delivered with the next NetBSD release - probably
1.6.1 - will work for you out of the box.

You apparently did only a partial NetBSD installation. Your system probably
lacks the "text" set.

I don't know what "pkg_add -r" does but NetBSD's "pkg_add" will install
all required binary packages automatically. You could e.g. install
KDE 2 with "pkg_add kde-2.2.2nb4.tgz" and all the required binary
packages woul be installed, too.

There must be something wrong with your setup. This definitely works.
BTW: please send further questions to public list like "email@example.com"
