Yeah, the Makefile for the package should be adjusted to install only on
NetBSD, since a check inside the script bombs out without it actually
being on NetBSD.  This is usually handled through Makefile checks, so you
can't build a useless program on a given platform.

It hasn't been actively maintained since 2005, probably before DragonFly
was even using pkgsrc.  You can try submitting a note or patch to
pkgsrc-users at
