I'm using PoPToP on a NetBSD 1.6.1_STABLE box and it works perfectly.

With NetBSD 1.6.x, you have to comment out the gre interface in your
kernel configuration in order to use PoPToP. The issue is corrected on

(I've just sent a PR for an update to 1.1.3 [which is equally affected by
the gre(4) issue], if you want, in pkg/22706.)

Could anyone send a pull-up request for that?
