I would use Mininet rather than some kernel or user land hack. Mininet allows 
you to create virtual networks that do whatever you want. I believe it is also 
possible to hook this virtual network up to a VirtualBox guest running NetBSD. 
Thie nice thing about this is that since you are using an unmodified NetBSD 
system, you know that this is how NetBSD will behave on a real network.
