He benchmarked NetBSD-current yesterday.
Some benchmarks declined a bit, but the last and IMHO most important 
'http-request-latency' benchmark comes close to Linux/FreeBSD. 
(1.6/poll vs. 2.0/kqueue)

And he encountered a problem during the update:
"The upgrade build process did not run smoothly, the NetBSD crowd will 
have to review that (e.g. I got a /usr/src/usr.bin/kqueue/kqueue/ 
directory from CVS, which the make clean run in tried to rm -f 
(without -r), and that caused the whole build to abort)."

He didn't wrote when he checked-out the source, but it must be between 
19. and 20. Oct.
