FYI, it (UNPRIVED=yes builds of xsrc) can be done with relatively little
hacking.  :-)

I now do fully automated builds of netbsd-1-6, including xsrc, complete
from scratch right to the final ISO images, on alpha, i386, and sparc.

Actually I do the xsrc part of sparc manually on an up-to-date sparc
server before running the final "nbmake-sparc iso-image" again on the
i386 machine I use to build for sparc, but that's only because I don't
build the OS for sparc on a sparc (it's too slow even with an SM71), and
I didn't want to try getting the imake cross-build stuff to work,
especially not for the old xsrc/xc still used on sparc.
