I've just been bitten by what looks like the problem described in PR16570 - 
an inability to use vnconfig on files residing in NFS-mounted filesystems  
(I'm building NetBSD boot-floppy and CD-ROM images, ala 
/usr/src/distrib/i386/floppies/...).  I can see the problem is closed (ref., but can't 
figure out what release the fix is in.  I'm currently running 1.5, obviously 
that's not the one :-)

As long as I'm asking questions, is there any other workaround besides:

	1) Moving the base-file out of NFS (involves messing with the Makefiles).
	2) Upgrading my development machine to 1.6 (not a bad idea, but I'd rather 
not do it right at this moment).
