Could I compile the "screen" package from a different NetBSD installation?

I have 6.1_RC4 for amd64 and i386 and 6.99.19 for amd64.

Or maybe even make a big floppy image including bootblocks and kernel, and 
boot.cfg, and boot from that with grub4dos, then specify the proper root?

That might or might not work, < 50% chance.

Considering that these green messages are a sign on instability, maybe I could 
wait for a later date and rebuild then.
