I've just installed net/netbsd-tap and now I have a file to run
and create the dev nodes:

# cat /usr/pkg/sbin/tap_postinstall 

rm -f /dev/tap /dev/tap0 /dev/tap1 /dev/tap2 /dev/tap3
mknod /dev/tap c $3 0xfffff
mknod /dev/tap0 c $3 0
mknod /dev/tap1 c $3 1
mknod /dev/tap2 c $3 2
mknod /dev/tap3 c $3 3

But the message I have doesn't explain what $3 should be...

 The script /usr/pkg/sbin/tap_postinstall creates the relevant device
 nodes in /dev, and can be used independently.

Any ideas?
