Yah... Get a decent /etc/rc to run if you don't have one already.  This
will make sure that the proper daemons get loaded and that the correct
databases are built.  If you kernel is installed as /netbsd, I can't
think of anything else to try, off-hand.

It got there by not having the ROOT bit set in the BZB(?) part of the
partition info.

Try disklabel's read-only options...

I'm thinking about revamping the disklabelling a bit...
