I built xentools415 on March 14, as part of testing what was to become
2023Q1.  The host was netbsd-10 (so 10_BETA). I would recommend testing
with 10 rather than 9 for a new system.

It's a bug that you need separate  modules, and my understanding is that
as of 10, you don't.

The suggestion you received about more RAM is a good one.

There is surely a way to get debugging.  Adding -d to the NetBSD boot
might help.  It might be possible to use kgdb on serial.

I will be updating my box and will try 4.15, but it's a 2012ish
