Are you trying to use the official packages on
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


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.
