giving on a comandline:

pkgin in tcsh

wants to install about 17G packages. tcsh seems to depend on whole X11, ruby in at least three versions, python2, python3, python34, gcc in at least two versions, the whole bunch of x11-programs including various emacs and xemacs packages

I do not think this is normal and ok. tcsh does only depend on a very view libs, together not more than 5MB. Not a complete Desktop including graphics, various compilers and other stuff maybe installed on a developers system!
Install NetBSD (does not matter which version. Take one!).
Then install pkgin. Configure pkgin.
Give "pkgin in tcsh"

Same for htop, pdksh, ... and various others. 
Fix would be to cut down dependencies in tcsh package not to include all any every package installed on a developers system.
