It seems my Realtek 8111E, on motherboard, works with NetBSD 6.0.  Checking
/var/run/dmesg.boot , it seemed OK, and nslookup and ftp worked; also cvs.

With NetBSD 5.1_STABLE, I saw a line in /var/run/dmesg.boot

re0: Unknown revision (0x2c800000)

but that also seemed to work OK.  Maybe not all features were supported, 
though I can't confirm that.

You might have got some more responses between the time I got your message
and got to this response, about 27 hours.
