I recommend that you unpack etc and xetc someplace (/usr/netbsd-etc of
course) and then diff -ur that to your system and ensure that all
changes are intended.  I completely get it why you want to move a
machine from i386 to amd64, but it's fairly rare and not a well-debugged
process.   Actually, diffing etc from upstream to local periodically is
good practice anyway.

(I have trimmed which lists are involved; posting the same thing to
netbsd-users@ and current-users@ seems wrong to me.)
