Actually further rejuvenation of some memory cells and a wee bit more
investigation has reminded me that CIAO, the sucessor to CIA, is
available in binary form for download.  These binaries should run on
NetBSD.  I've used other related binaries (eg. ksh93) from the i386
distribution before, and I've every expectation that the SunOS-4
binaries will work too.
Here's where you'll find info about CIAO:

and here's where you go to "sign" the license agreement and download the
binary distribution:

(click on the "Binary" agreement button)

[SFIO, VMALLOC, CDT, and other fun source "licenses" are also available
one directory up from here too.  SFIO now seems to be under a BSD-style
freely redistributable copyright too, though VMALLOC is still under the
old AT&T non-exclusive company-wide "single-copy" license, and CDT is
under a very restrictive license.  It would be nice to SFIO in NetBSD!]
