   | Right, that's "complete installation" in the netbsd 4.0.1 install cd
   | with the ftp path i posted in the bug report..
 In that case, it isn't "native xorg" but "XFree86", that's what was
 on 4.0.1 (native xorg is only on 5.0 (BETA now) and current, I believe).
 There are lots of packages these days that simply don't work with
 XFree86 any more, and there seems to be no interest in fixing (most of) them.
 The impression I've gathered from message reading is that you're really
 supposed to switch to modular xorg (from pkgsrc) on any system without native
 xorg - which means trashing everything X related (you can probably just
 leave /usr/X11R6 but it is unlikely to ever be used again), and rebuilding
 the world.
