I've been using sysutils/sysbuild + sysutils/sysbuild-user
from pkgsrc. The package is still broken but only requires
${SYSBUILD_BINDIR="/usr/pkg"} to point to /usr/pkg/bin.

I use the default incremental builds which are quite fast
after the first pass. Only downside for me is that each of
my /home/sysbuild/nbsd-ver_arch/ directories needs > 20G
disk space. It's probably possible to run multiple 
ver/arch from a single directory but my build pc with 
2G ram ground to a halt with all swap+memory used up.
