I tried again with dhcpcd and did worse, then did directly (after ps -aux and killing job number for dhcpcd)
ifconfig re0 inet 192.168.0.4 netmask 255.255.255.0
route add default 192.168.0.1
and then was successful with "host news.individual.net"
lynx http://bluegrass.net/ (just for testing)
I was even able to update FreeBSD ports tree (with svn) and netbsd-HEAD src tree (with cvs).
Using dhcpcd or dhclient makes me rusty on directly setting internet interface; any suggestions for improvement on what I did are welcome.
But directly configuring internet interface uncripples an otherwise crippled NetBSD installation.
I think I could also have expressed netmask as 0xffffff00 or ...inet 192.168.0.4/24 ?
