tap support was added on 2005/01/08 according to the logs for if_tap.c,
the closest thing I could find to this date was 2005/01/10 that gives me

#define       __NetBSD_Version__      299001300

this would cover 3.0 and current, now for 2.0 I dont know what's the 
best approach since tap support is only avaiable through LKM from pkgsrc.
