You can use SVGAlib natively, if you get the sources and compile it
under NetBSD. This should not be too much trouble, I think I did it
once in a distant past. If someone makes this work, it can be
made into a package.

One thing you will need is pcvt in your kernel, as is needed to have
Linux SVGAlib binaries work.
