Rafal is right, though I'm not sure exactly what to do about it. After
Mr. Kiyohara's last message, I tried to duplicate his set up, but didn't
know exactly what version he had downloaded. Based on the date of his
diff file, I fetched the 20080821 version of NetBSD, but couldn't build
tools because of a problem with cross-compiling libc. Nor would
20080822 or 20080823. Fetching from 20080824, I found that the diff
file wouldn't work on all files. The problem with libc was due to a
file checked in on 8/20, so I went back to 8/19. But here, again, the
diff patch didn't work exactly right, so I manually fetched the three
files that were a problem (three dev/pci files), built everything and it
all works (or at least seems to). Ahh - life with -current.

There is probably some functionality missing, though I'm not sure
what. The system doesn't seem all that stable, and has hung up a
few times doing relatively benign things such as:
"ls /dev | grep sd0".
I think that the cause of hangup is arm. Because I hang up by both
KUROBOX_PRO and GUMSTIX.
I noticed that at least from the dmesg of Don's machine that his
ORION-NAS kernel was based on 4.99.66 TNF sources, which made me think
the hangups might be to port-arm/38950. There have also been a pile
of pmap changes since then, some of them causing short-term problems.
I found the mergeup of TNF changes from ~ 4.99.66 to 4.99.72 (where my
tree is currently frozen due to lack of hacking time) in my private
evbarm tree helped stability greatly for relatively little effort.
I suppose if I knew more about CVS than "cvs checkout -D xxxxxxxxxx-UTC
src", this would be easier. :-)
Incidentally, dmesg now shows:
NetBSD 4.99.72 (KUROBOX_PRO) #0: Sun Sep 7 19:03:23 EDT 2008
so I think I'll follow Rafal's advice and freeze where I am for the time
