I don't use Nethence myself.

Nethence uses pkgsrc. I maintain pkgsrc packages for modular xorg.

Some are already hosted my NetBSD's pkgsrc.

But most are a work in progress and available via pkgsrc-wip hosted at 
sourceforge. I have done a lot of testing of them on Linux.

Please use pkgsrc and use cvs to retrieve the pkgsrc-wip. See

First try the wip/modular-xorg-libs meta package.

I will be glad to help you via the pkgsrc-wip-discuss list or the 
pkgsrc-users list.
