That goes in a kernel config file, for any system 4.0beta or later.
(That describes all of my machines -- I upgraded the last one
yesterday to let it talk to at UPS.) You then build a custom kernel
according to the instructions in the NetBSD guide.
Here's my config file on that machine:
options SHMMAXPGS=32768 # 2048 pages is the default
options IPSEC # IP security
options IPSEC_ESP # IP security (encryption part; define w/IPSEC)
options PCKBD_LAYOUT="(KB_US | KB_SWAPCTRLCAPS)"
ugen* at uhub? port ? vendor "0x051d" flags 1
Note the 'include' line -- it saves a lot of trouble if you're willing
to accept all of the unnecessary drivers in GENERIC. (I am -- trimming
it down would save me very little memory, as such things go.)
