As you know, some people run old no-longer-supported versions of operating systems like OS X 10.7 ;-) I'd like to avoid us losing support for older versions of Free software systems if it isn't causing trouble. netbsd-5 in particular is not so crufty and I'd like to avoid problems on that, but that seems to use xorg in base, and if I am following correctly NetBSD 4 is the last NetBSD branch to use XFree86. However, pkgsrc on netbsd-4 and -5 defaults to and only really works with modular From pkgsrc, so your proposed change doesn't actually hurt people on netbsd-4. Is that description correct? Are there are systems, even ancient, where this change will cause reduced functionality? Or are you saying that on all systems, we either default to X11_TYPE=modular or the base is at least xorg?
