The shortest answer is that you just build the package as usual on a
machine of platform Y
% cd /usr/pkgsrc # or wherever your pkgsrc tree is
% cvs update -dPA # updates your pkgsrc tree to the latest HEAD
% cd /usr/pkgsrc/category/package
% make package
That will generate a binary package under /usr/pkgsrc/packages/All.
The long and detailed answer is https://www.netbsd.org/docs/pkgsrc/,
which walks the reader through most common pkgsrc-related tasks.
I suspect, however, that neither of those answers is what you were
looking for. Could you give a little more detail about what you're
trying to do or which step is puzzling your? That might help us
formulate helpful answers.
