Yes, you can. In fact, I just repaired locore.s, so kernel symbols are 
available again to the ddb routines.

You'll need the NetBSD bootblocks (in <sys/arch/sparc/stand>) to load the
symbols and to pass their location to the kernel. There's a small element
of risk involved in installing the bootblocks, though, if you don't have
alternate devices to boot your system.
