Are you trying to use the official packages on nebsd.org? Can you post the link from pkgin repositories.conf? Did you download the new pkgin and look at it with pkg_info? This sounds like a bug. On my system, pkgin (locally built) depends only on pkg_install>=20130901 libarchive>=3.1.2 which seems quite sane. But that system is netbsd-6 with X11_TYPE=modular. Still, pkgin seems x-less. pkgsrc does assume native X for 6, so the binary packages will be built against that, which will cause failures for X-using packages. I realize you understand that, and that your complaint is that packages which should not have a dependency on X seem to, but I want to caution others that not installing X leads to being on thin ice with binary packages that assume X.
