I've had a lot more success with 2005Q3 packages compiling than the
previous release, although some fairly major things are still broken
(eg. apache2 and gcc).

Using 2005Q3 is not a good idea for DragonFly. That is the stable branch that is mostly for security bug fixes and crucial build issues.

Because DragonFly is a new platform (especially for pkgsrc), the many fixes can't easily be pulled up to the 2005Q3 branch (mostly due to lack of volunteer time for that specifically).

Please consider using HEAD for pkgsrc (for now).

As for Apache: Go through the code looking for checks for FreeBSD and add similar checks for DragonFly as appropriate. And this needs to be sent upstream to apache.org also.

And for gcc, same thing.

It says:

Invalid configuration `i386-pc-dragonfly1': system `dragonfly1' not recognized
Invalid configuration `i386-pc-dragonfly1': system `dragonfly1' not recognized
Unrecognized host system name i386-pc-dragonfly1.

So go through the code and find references to FreeBSD and seek what is appropriate for checking for DragonFly also. Share your patches with gcc-patches or whatever is good for GCC. (It may be useful to look at DragonFly's src/gnu/usr.bin/cc34 or other code for comparisons.)
