Your sl0 and eth0 IP addresses are on the same subnet, can't work.
With that configuration your ethernet interface subnet has addresses
from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199, and your slip interface
netmask overlaps with that, as it has addresses from 188.8.131.52
I don't think you should use routed at all, as netbsd supports
kernel routing. I haven't tried with SLIP, but I guess there
is similar functionality with sliplogin or slattach as with pppd,
which informs kernel about new route when it starts and removes
the routing entry when it stops.
