[Note that I followup'ed to port-i386 not to current since it's i386
It's a bug in -current. To get around it you have to disable the
kernel security feature by initializing the ``securelevel'' variable
to -1 in /sys/kern/kern_sysctl.c, line 205 and building a new
kernel. For more informations, see the comments in
You can also install the NetBSD aperture driver to get around
this. See README.NetBSD in XFree86 3.1.1 distribution.
