I realized after sending my previous reply that you are probably trying to have a way to build and run tests on NetBSD-6 from a git checkout as part of development testing. One approach I've taken with other programs is to have a README.NetBSD file which is actually an executable /bin/sh script with comments, explaining the prereqs in terms of pkgsrc and invoking configure to get dependencies from pkgsrc (-I/usr/pkg/include plus -L/-R). So in the git case, this could set PYTHON_PATH in the environment. I realize a README.foo file for N different systems could be clutter, but having these checked in would provide the concise help that people on any of those platforms need.
