I'm running post 1.6.1 (basically the most up to date 1.6 branch) on a machine
I'm using to build pkgsrc.

So uname returns the version as: 1.6.1_STABLE

(It did this after 1.6 as well which was something Luke established then).

This actually breaks in a few places that try to match for 

NetBSD-1.6-* NetBSD-1.6.1-* NetBSD-1.6[A-S]-*

for instance. (Think INCOMPAT_CURSES for ncurses).

Is there any reason folks can think of that shouldn't strip off
the underscore->end portion of the string?
