I believe I must apply the fix/workaround every time. meaning every booted session where I would build packages from pkgsrc.

Had I known the next point, I might have tried to upgrade to releng-9 (NetBSD 9.2_STABLE) instead of HEAD, if the cvs checkout and update didn't get stuck on a broken pipe.

But I don't really know if that would have helped regarding pkgsrc problems.

NetBSD 9.99.82 has reduced functionality compared to 8.99.51.

I can still use some old packages, but much less than with 8.99.51.

Last time I looked at the releng wiki page, I noticed that there were issues that prevented the netbsd-10 branch, and no time estimate for the branch.

Entropy bug was not mentioned specifically, but clearly it is a blocker.
