I couldn't find it in pkgsrc, and I don't see official package on the webpage.

I did found a package in OpenBSD's tree, though: http://openports.se/cad/kicad
But the last commit was on 02/2008

But in FreeBSD's ports tree there is a fresh port: http://www.freshports.org/cad/kicad/
(check also cad/kicad-devel).

If you want it on *BSD, I guess the pick is on FreeBSD. I don't know how hard would it be to port it to NetBSD though.

Hello and welcome to the forums!

Telling us which error you have, which version of KiCAD you're trying to compile, which NetBSD version you use, which command you used, etc. would help too, since the vBulletin Telepathic plugin is currently disabled .

You have to port it your-self. That is highly non-trivial if you do not know what are you doing. Do you know anything about Makefiles? For starters that program is probably using GNU make. NetBSD uses BSD make. You have to add gmake as
dependency.

Try to un-tar the source code and go with
Code:
./configure && gmake
and post the ouput of the compiler.
