I ran devpubd from the command line, that worked only for the current session, 
but did not persist on the next reboot.

I then looked in /etc/defaults/rc.conf for devpubd, found that line and copied 
to /etc/rc.conf, changed "NO" to "YES".

That worked.

Maybe I could install NetBSD root on a partition above the /dev/dk* range, as 
long as I have the devpubd line in /etv/rc.conf?
