NetBSD® pkgsrc® is a method to install a set of packages
on top of a base system, like all the BSDs have.

I guess you’ll need a minimal GNU/Linux system below it,
maybe or something
like that will suffice?

I don’t think pkgsrc® contains all components you’ll need
to have installed, even later (so you can’t get rid of
the “base OS” you used). Nor a kernel…

No, the only way I've seen them sold is for $40 with a free OpenBSD CD.
