Yes, one was from base.
I am not testing this on a different system and running dhcpcd from

I got past this by starting dbus:
sudo /usr/pkg/share/examples/rc.d/dbus onestart
I was told about this off list. I will put in place and set variable when
I know this works.
Please consider making it so it doesn't core dump but gives some
reasonable failure message.
Now it fails with:
** Message: Connecting ...
** (dhcpcd-gtk:1276): CRITICAL **: libdhcpcd: GetVersion: Launch helper
exited with unknown return code 96

I am now trying the pkgsrc versions with NetBSD 5.0.
Any idea for the above critical failure?
(Thanks for the other info too.)
