"No available video device" on netbsd8

NetBSD i386… SDL2 installed with pkgin from repos…

Simple SDL_Init() exits with “No available video device”.

I tried puting my user into “video” and “audio” groups.
I tried setting SDL_VIDEODRIVER=x11 env variable.
I tried starting my program as root. Still no go.
What to do next? The next thing I will try is to install SDL2 from source.
Does anyone here use NetBSD?
