cd /usr/src/etc ; make DESTDIR=/where-ever install-etc-files

If you're upgrading an already running NetBSD box, then
	cd /usr/src ; ./etc/postinstall check
and then
	cd /usr/src ; ./etc/postinstall fix

Should fix things up too.

(I'm tempted to remove the postinstall check for builds to DESTDIR != /)
