Thanks for letting me know, this advice will save me many hours of frustration.
I can see why a graphics driver that disables support for all other graphics
hardware would not be suitable to include in the source tree.
So now it looks like I won't go any further with NetBSD-current on present
computer, considering that I'm looking toward buying a new computer, am glad I
tested it on a USB stick rather than burning my bridges by overwriting my
NetBSD 5.1_STABLE installation on hard drive.
FreeBSD 8.1 and Linux seem to have no problems with my ATI Rage 128 graphics
