I would not go so far and say it's broken, but unexpected and uncommon? Yeah.

That sounds like a reasonable approach. Debugging something that only fails at runtime has the potential for a lot of brokenness that we don't notice. SQLite3 is small, so always using pkgsrc SQLite3 on NetBSD < 10 seems reasonable to me.

Sounds good to me. And while at it, we should look what other features we're missing.
