No doubt I'm guilty -- I've always wondered where the $NetBSD$ id's came

I've started my mpc8xx port by copying files from the prep port.  For these
files, I've left the existing $NetBSD$ and $OpenBSD$ RCS id's in place,
modifying only the code.  For new files of my own creation, I've used $Id$.

This amounts to adding some new files with $NetBSD$.  From your comments,
I'm guessing this was wrong.  If so (please confirm), I'll change all new
files to $Id$ in my next patch file.
