Hi guys.

To be honest I only have experience with updating my NetBSD 
from 3.0 to current and following current.
And I am curious, why is that so every time I'm updating 
my boxes to current, recompile kernel and distribution and run:
/usr/sbin/etcupdate -s /usr/src/etc
It says:
*** Creating /tmp/temproot
*** Populating /tmp/temproot from /usr/src/etc
install: stat: No such file or directory

Running /usr/sbin/etcupdate -s /usr/src/etc for second time says:
[root@xen:~]# /usr/sbin/etcupdate -s /usr/src/etc
*** WARNING: /tmp/temproot already exists
Continue previously aborted update? (y/[n])

Then chosing 'y' gets me to the etcupdate.
Is it how it's suppose to work or am I missing something?
I allways follow:
