Is there a way to get a count of the total number of bytes placed
on the wire under netbsd?  The information provided by 'netstat -bi' 
seems to be IP-level only, without any of the ethernet framing bytes,
at least for outgoing frames.  I'm playing with a traffic generator
from Ixia, and want as many sanity checks on the data I'm gathering as

Is there an easy way to get this information?
