"we'll move of CVS one day?"  Do you mean off?  FreeBSD switched from cvs/cvsup/csup to svn in summer 2012 because of a security breach.

My bigger interest here is no longer being able to connect to the Internet with NetBSD-current with Realtek 8111E/8168 Ethernet, re(4) driver.

I don't really think I could get around this bug by tweaking dhcpcd.conf, but you might have a better idea on this matter.
