Uhhh... Building neofetch from NetBSD pkgsrc pulls in bash (expected), but also all of perl5...

...apparently building bash needs bison, and that pulls in perl, for the test suite I guess?

Now to find out if I can disable running tests (and building test dependencies) in pkgsrc...

Doesn't seem like a critical dependency, so I have removed perl:build from USE_TOOLS+= in the pkgsrc Makefile for bison and hope that configure will pick up the change... I'll see in a couple of hours...

There's not really much documentation on cross-building NetBSD pkgsrc, but from what I understand it's only possible for a small subset of packages?

Thinking about trying to find a qemu-system-mips64 configuration that's able to boot some netbsd-mipsel port and provides a slightly less constrained environment for a "native" build?
