I like using scripting languages for tests. It's a bit of extra
work for binding your C code with a scripting language but it's
time well spent because you look at your code from a different
perspective. And these test scripts are much more flexible than
test written in C (and can be written by non-C coder).

So, lua can be used for testing NetBSD code.

just my 2p,
