So, I updated the second stage /boot file, changed my boot.cfg to include
the rndseed command as found in src/etc/etc.i386/boot.cfg

   menu=Boot normally:rndseed /root/entropy-file;boot netbsd

and changed my /etc/rc.conf to use the random_file as above


I verified that this works ("stop" creates the file, "start" removes it)

and rebooted, but it still produces warning messages (the "sysctl" one
during dev_mkdb, and the "kernel" one during fetchmail) what is not working?
