Good to know.  Now I can feel free to proceed with my update builds, amd64 and i386.

I have one NetBSD 7.99.15 installation (amd64) where I updated the kernel to 7.99.71, but not the userland.

That was the second of two computers to be updated, using NFS after updating successfully on the first.

I think I'll stay with HEAD, now 8.99.1.
