It should exist as a symlink to /usr/sbin/rmt. The reason for this is to
maintain interoperability with non-NetBSD systems.
Did you install the etc kit when you installed your current OS?
Sorry for the stupid question. I didn't realize the protocol required
/etc/rmt. Makes sense, though. I did install the etc kit, but I
guess somewhere along the line the link got vaporized.
Thanks for the help.
