Default Installing Xorg

Firstly: what's up with this "modular" stuff? Can you install modular vs monolithic Xorg/XF86?

Secondly: Am I blind or isn't there a page somewhere detailing the actual installation of Xorg/XF86 on NetBSD and not just this configuration?

I found http://wiki.netbsd.se/How_to_install_modular_Xorg and if I follow those instructions the build fails installing the server module:

"make: don't know how to make /usr/share/tmac/andoc.tmac"

"WARNING: *** Please consider adding c++ to USE_LANGUAGES in the package Makefile" (and the same for Fortran)

I've tried adding C++ and Fortran in various ways:


USE_LANGUAGES= c c++ fortran

Not sure if either are correct syntax but the build still fails.

Any help would be appreciated.

Also isn't there a way to update the pkgsrc tools or does this happen when you do a full update using "cvs update -dP" in /usr/pkgsrc?
