NetBSD is complex and understaffed. There are actually 2 versions of Xorg: Monolithic and Modular.

Monolithic comes with the installer and is installed if you selected the x* install sets during install. xf86-input-keyboard is included with the Monolithic install. I do not know about the vmware packages but you may get a sense if there is a vmware man page with the default install.

Modular is an option for those who wish to build their own Xorg.

Also, there are 2 paths to packages:

1. Pre-built binary packages which are installed by pkgin or pkg_add.
2. Build your own packages from pkgsrc.
