I don't know those specifically, but from their names I suspect that
several, at least, are tied pretty closely to kernel primitives that
NetBSD either lacks or has in very different form.  What, specifically,
do they do?  I can make some guesses, of course.  For monitoring power
status, I use asapm (though I'm working on fixes to make it compile on
amd64, it's fine for i386).  There are several sound mixer applications
in pkgsrc; I don't have a favorite.  Networkmonitor is something we're
sorely lacking, though I've personally been frustrated by the interface
and the bugginess in the Ubuntu 7.10 version.  What do wapmonitor and
keyboardstatus do?
