From a really quick look at their linux build instructions, it should be doable. Keep in mind that working pkgsrc package and working package that builds on NetBSD are two separate things. Often, upstreams are not as portable as they should be -- obviously, they should rely only on more or less POSIX and on other projects that are portable, unless there's a good reason :-) But seriously, if you can follow the upstream directions and build it by hand, it can be packaged. If you can't, then that's really an upstream portability problem that should be addressed with upstream. I have found most projects are willing to take patches (pull request for githubby projects) to improve portability, and it seems only a few are firmly unreasonable.
