NetBSD guys use cross compiling for all other architectures which means that pkgsrc is likely to fail on let say NetBSD VAX port because it has not been tested on the real hardware. Their support for other OSs is verbal at best.
Just a quote, probably not everything being as bad:
Finally ditched homebrew, I've had enough. I'm now using NetBSD's pkgsrc on OS X instead, and first experiences are great. Article coming.
