This seems to be caused by changes in realpath(3). Some versions of NetBSD
erroneously succeed even if the last component of the path does not exist.
This behavior is unexpected and breaks 3rd party programs such as KDE, so
the issue seems to have been fixed at head. Unfortunately the old and
broken behavior is relied upon by systrace and fixing the realpath issue
breaks handling of non existant files in systrace. I think that the systrace
code should be fixed.
