Assuming a stock restore CD was used to install NetBSD, only a
minuscule amount of disk space was allocated to each /tmp & /var.  All
other disk space was given to /.  I suspect the reason for this
partitioning scheme was to provide a general solution everyone could
use in light of the vast range of disk sizes available.  So in your
case, fsck has a *lot* of disk space to correlate.

See the restore CD thread from the last few days.  There you see my
boneheaded journey...  :-)
