I've not seen this on any of my build systems, and at least two of
them have been running the release branch code of various vintage
over the past several months.  Maybe I'm just lucky...

Please do collect as much information as you can, and submit this as
a formal problem report with send-pr.  Hopefully this problem can be
found and fixed (if it is indeed a bug in NetBSD) before we ship

Thanks for the testing, and best regards from
