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.
