Puzzled: if I run NetBSD with its native Xorg, i.e., install the xbase.tgz
etc., sets, I can run startx/xinit without the need for anything from pkgsrc.

If I use X11_TYPE=modular, and use the X libraries built from pkgsrc, then
I also don't need x11-inks.

If I want to build a pkgsrc package which uses X, I need the x11-links
package, so that pkgsrc can find my native X.

So, I don't understand how startx not running for you relates to x11-links...
