Yesterday Christos added PaX ASLR to -current. You can read in
security(8) what it does and how it interacts with existing features
in NetBSD.

We're looking to improve it further, but I'd like to ask users of
-current to enable it globally and report if you see any breakage or
not. Please mention the architecture you're using too; AFAIK it has
been tested only on i386 and amd64.

Finally, I'd like to take this opportunity and thank both Christos and
the PaX author for helping with getting this feature done (and fast!).
