From src/sys/arch/alpha/conf/GENERIC netbsd-1-6 tag:
# Workstation Console attachments
#wsdisplay*     at      cfb?
wsdisplay*      at      vga?
#wsdisplay*     at      sfb?
wsdisplay*      at      tga?
wskbd*          at      pckbd?
wsmouse*        at      pms?
So the answer is no. No TC framebufer out of the box.

Why? Is it still that unstable? I had no probles with it, even X11 
worked when I used my DEC 3k600 with head about a year ago.
