 I don't remember how I installed them (from installer or by manually extracting sets), but I have NetBSD 9.0 machines with neither /etc/mtree/set.xbase nor /usr/X11R7. Even without a misconfigured sandbox, it seems to me that it is possible to build a pkgsrc bulk using the native X11 distribution while this distribution has actually not been installed.
 Would it make sense a patch as the following? The objective is to avoid getting a lot of packages for which the build fails due to this inconsistency.
