  That's because there is a bug in that version of binpatch.  You
need to use the alternate form:
	binpatch -s _rh_default_grx=1 netbsd.pat

  The ECS servers allow setting the width & height as command line
arguments to the server.

  If you are using the 1.0 version of mount_ados, it doesn't have a
read-only option.  The adosfs mount routine didn't enforce a read-only
mount even though the file system was read-only.

  The current kernel requires that the mount specify read-only, which
the old mount_ados can not do.  To mount ados partitions with the current
kernel requires a newer version of mount_ados that accepts the ro option.
