For 4.0 and -current it only works for root. As a normal user, you need the
nodev,nosuid options - see mount(8):

     In NetBSD, a file system can only be mounted by an ordinary user who owns
     the point node and has access to the special device (at least read per-
     missions).  Also, the vfs.generic.usermount sysctl(3) must be set to 1 to
     permit file system mounting by ordinary users, see sysctl(8).  Finally,
     the flags nosuid and nodev must be given for non-superuser mounts.
