Well, which version of NetBSD are you using? And you left out the
interesting part here - which keyboard driver do you use? kbd or

The address in the error message is NOT the VGA framebuffer so
OFB_FAKE_VGA_FB won't help.
Please check your XFree86 log ( in /var/log/ ) - if XFree messed with
the PCI BARs you'd get this sort of error since the console driver
checks the address ranges that belong to the graphics controller only on
startup, if something changes them afterwards mmap() will fail.
