It's not mixing OSs. It's using NetBSD's version of "/usr/ports"
on OpenBSD. (to them a port is new hardware platform, and a pkg is
what we might call a port. the pkgsrc is, well, the source for that).
One *nice* thing about their system is that, just as BSDi put things
they included that weren't part of the OS proper into /usr/contrib,
NetBSD puts it in /usr/pkg/. This leaves /usr/local/ to YOU for
stuff that solely yours. Annoyingly, configs go into /usr/pkg/etc/.
But I *do* really like the idea of maintaining one damn (ports|pkgsrc)
tree that works on 3 BSD's, Solaris, OSX and Linux. Consolidating
effort seems a no brainer.
I just started using pkgsrc on Solaris in production. I just got
tired of making packages by hand for every damn thing I needed,
what with SunOS shipping with a userland from the 80s.
That said, you're errors with make just be moot. OpenBSD ships
with a BSD make :) You will want their pkg_*.
And it *will* conflict in /var/db/pkg/ per the README.OpenBSD if
you're using OpenBSD ports.
And you may run into bumps as NetBSD doesn't come with OpenSSL,
Apache or Perl and OpenBSD does.

What he said. i386 went from a.out to elf in that time. Use 3.4 binaries.
