Sorry for very late reply.

It fails with the following errors (from firefox and mplayer).
I feel pulseaudio 4.0 may not work on NetBSD.
According to

  Support for HAL has been removed. This shouldn't affect anyone,
  but if it does, please configure PulseAudio to use udev instead.
  module-hal-detect still exists for maintaining configuration file
  compatibility, but all it does is to load module-udev-detect.
  module-hal-detect may get completely removed in 4.0.

udev is required.
NetBSD has no udev.
We have devpubd(8), but I am completely no idea about it.
