Maybe pkgsrc recognized xorg as part of the system already there, like with native xorg in NetBSD?

In Linux, pkgsrc would have to work with a Linux package manager already there, since everything in Linux is a package, unlike FreeBSD and NetBSD where there is a well-defined base system.

I notice there is no util-linux in pkgsrc, and no Linux kernel which would be impossible to maintain as part of pkgsrc in view of so many versions.
