Default to X11_TYPE=modular on netbsd-5.
Base xsrc on netbsd-5 has not really worked with pkgsrc for a while,
because various programs need newer versions of various X pieces. The
2014Q2 official bulk builds are missing about 1500 packages as a
result of this. Therefore, switch to modular on netbsd-5 (as netbsd-4
has been for a very long time), which should result in more useful
binary packages for netbsd-5 for 2014Q3.
(There is a notion of updating netbsd-5 base xsrc to more modern xorg.
If that happens, and there's a 5.x formal release, and builds show
that pkgsrc with native succeeds on it, this can perhaps be flipped
back. Odds are that's not going to happen, and it's overwhelmingly
unlikely to happen soon.)
Anyone who prefers to stay with native can set X11_TYPE=native in
Note that this is about pkgsrc and specifically the default
dependencies for pkgsrc programs that use X11, so the native servers
are unaffected and can be run from /usr/X11R7, the same as they are
now, without any changes being necessary. (This message is in fact
