I hope it does.

As far as I've understood, it's common to retag xsrc on point
releases.  In practical terms this means that on the netbsd-1-4
branch, we should be building against xsrc-current at this time.  If
that doesn't work it should be fixed before we retag xsrc for 1.4.2.
I'll put "check building of xsrc" up on my TODO list; but don't let
that prevent others to check/fix.
