Installing Xorg on NetBSD
Firstly: what's up with this "modular" stuff? Can you install modular vs monolithic Xorg/XF86?
Secondly: Am I blind or isn't there a page somewhere detailing the actual installation of Xorg/XF86 on NetBSD and not just this configuration?
I found http://wiki.netbsd.se/How_to_install_modular_Xorg and if I follow those instructions the build fails installing the server module:
"make: don't know how to make /usr/share/tmac/andoc.tmac"
"WARNING: *** Please consider adding c++ to USE_LANGUAGES in the package Makefile" (and the same for Fortran)
I've tried adding C++ and Fortran in various ways:
USE_LANGUAGES= c c++ fortran
Not sure if either are correct syntax but the build still fails.
Any help would be appreciated.
Also isn't there a way to update the pkgsrc tools or does this happen when you do a full update using "cvs update -dP" in /usr/pkgsrc?

I using Xorg on NetBSD before.. If you tried build this from pkgsrc repository your should add X11_TYPE=xorg and USE_LANGUAGES+=c to /etc/mk.conf file.
I doing update my repository thus
cvs up -PfAdC pkgsrc
