NetBSD lap 7.0_STABLE NetBSD 7.0_STABLE (GENERIC.201606022350Z) amd64
default install
configure networking
add this to /etc (one of the options)

end result:

dhcpcd_flags="-qM $if" in /etc/rc.conf.

dhcpcd in this form will block boot, wasting time for no reason.

add -b flag:

-b, --background Background immediately. This is useful for startup scripts which don't disable link messages for carrier status.


You may disagree on syntax, but this is where to add.
