Yes, AFAICS it requires at least a modification to /boot.cfg to be in use 
(eg "rndseed /var/db/entropy-file;" before "boot /netbsd.gz"). It is 
mentioned in boot.cfg(5) and seems to integrate with rndctl(8), and the 
rnd(9) kernel subsystem of course.

Should the example in boot.cfg(5) be updated?
