One thing to consider is how the base toolchain on NetBSD is configured.

$ /usr/bin/gcc -v 2>&1 | grep Target
Target: x86_64--netbsd

The triplet used by pkgsrc should agree with the base system compiler.
It is conceivable that there exists software that becomes unhappy otherwise.

(OTOH base clang seems to be targeted to x86_64-unknown-netbsd but I'd
still consider that to be experimental.)
