NetBSD 3.0_STABLE i386
I recently updated a box from 2.0.3_RELEASE to 3.0_STABLE and swapped from ipfilter to pf. I did the update manually (i.e. tar zxpf, ./MAKEDEV, postinstall etc.) when I enabled pf in a custom 3.0_STABLE kernel it failed to start as /etc/pf.os was missing.
Upgrade a box from 2.0.3_RELEASE to 3.0_STABLE and try to run pf.
Copy pf.os from another 3.0_STABLE box :)
Seriously, I'm assuming this requires a change to a postinstall related action ? It probably just needs to be told it needs to install pf.os from the 3.0_STABLE etc.tgz file.
Sorry for not providing a better fix but I just wanted to make sure this did't get lost as another unfiled PR :)
