System: NetBSD 9.1 NetBSD 9.1 (GENERIC) #0: Sun Oct 18 19:24:30 UTC 2020 amd64
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
  The Tkabber from the pkgsrc binaries is version 0.11.1 and does not support/compiled without SSL/TLS encryption at all. Please bump the TKabber version to the newest one, which seems to be version 1.1.2 and compile it with TLS support for the pkgsrc binaries.

	In addition to that, please make sure the ca certpath is set correctly to a valid default directory (e.g. /etc/openssl/certs on NetBSD) as the version of Tkabber from FreeBSD seems to cannot find the ca certpath and aborts connections with the "Connot get local issuer" error.

	I think it is imposible to use the Tkabber version 0.11.1 from pkgsrc with newer XMPP/Jabber server setups, which mostly require connections over secure TLS encryption.

	Thank you very much for your kind attention.

 Start Tkabber from the pkgsrc-2020Q4 binaries on NetBSD 9.1/amd64 an try to connect with STARTTLS option enabled. It does not work, since there is no encryption pane in the connection dialog of Tkabber. The recent version of Tkabber from Debian works fine, and allows encryption settings (STARTTLS) for a connection over TLS encryption.
 Newer Tkabber version with TLS support enabled
