I tried raplayer for the FreeBSD version. The program starts up fine,
but when trying to play a file it complains about not finding the
/dev/dsp device. NetBSD doesn't seem to have this device.

Do I need to place the FreeBSD devices into the /emul/freebsd/dev in
order to get it to work?

I am running NetBSD-1.2a the version before the NetBSD-1.2-release...
does this version need the kernel patch?
