The original error looks like you don't have sd2.
swapctl and fsck both complains that /dev/sd2x is not configured.
Does /dev/sd2x exist in your /dev? (where x = a,b,c...)
Does netbsd nowadays create a /dev on a ramdisk if it don't exist? If so,
make sure you are not getting into that when you get into single-user
Another item would be to check that you actually have a sd2 when you boot.
That's earlier in your dmesg.
