Do no harm, DTRT, did anyone check usage stats? Perhaps nobody fixed it
because of the valuable comments at the end. As far as I'm concerned it
was never broken, never advertised as a close your eyes and configure
the kernel tool. I always go in an purge ppp, some extra fs and add pf
too. maybe the src script should be purged as well since it
requieres a manual fixups? Sure, I'd like adjkernel better if it was
written in /bin/sh but if that is a problem I can always process the
dmesg on a host that has perl....

BTW anyone know why a fresh netbsd src checkout, distribution
and install always fails the first time through, but works the second?
