I'm not sure what you mean here - in general, the question seems like=20
someone on tech-kern@ could help you further.
The general idea is that the files.* files tell what devices exist and can=
be used by a certain architecture, and that the kernel config file then=20
tells which device drivers really to build into the kernel. For each=20
architecture, there's a std.<whatever> file in the 'conf' directory that=20
pulls in in those files.* files that the architecture supports - see all=20
the various std.* files in src/sys/arch/evbarm/conf as some examples.
Often, this is a bit of a maze to fine through, e.g. for gpio on=20
armadillo9, the way is: std.armadillo9 -> files.armadillo9 -> files.ep93xx
I'm not sure about the details behind this...

No idea - someone port-arm@NetBSD.org may know.

* your /etc/wscons.conf to have 'screen 1' to 'screen 4' enabled:
=09# Uncomment if a serial console is used.
=09#screen 0 - vt100
=09screen 1 - vt100
=09screen 2 - vt100
=09screen 3 - vt100
=09screen 4 - -
* your /etc/ttys to have gettys running on the virtual consoles:
=09ttyE0 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" vt220 on secure
=09ttyE1 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" vt220 on secure
=09ttyE2 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" vt220 on secure
=09ttyE3 "/usr/libexec/getty Pc" vt220 on secure
Paths may be different if that's not on i386.
* your /etc/rc.conf to have 'wscons=3Dyes'
This assumes that you do use wscons as your console driver (which is the=20
default on most platforms). See also:=20

You can't. You'll have to build them natively.
Yes, this sucks - if you find a way to tell configure scripts to work with=
cross compiling, let us know!

That depends a bit on how you prepare the flash image. As you usually have=
paths compiled into a binary (to config files, data files, etc. etc.)=20
moving files around is ***never*** a smart idea, though.
