Well, at least on my Mac IIci, the -current stuff is working just fine.  I 
spent quite a bit of time debugging the MRG code to get the interrupts 
turned on on the IIci, as well as putting in some code to ignore a 
spurious PostEvent ( 0xa02f ) trap.   I think you can get the kernel - I've forgotten the directory, but the kernel 
name is netbsd.040895
