Here's what "ifconfig -m de0" gives on my build host:

maaltrost% ifconfig -m de0
        media: Ethernet 100baseTX full-duplex
        status: active
        supported Ethernet media:
                media autoselect
                media 100baseTX mediaopt full-duplex
                media 100baseTX
                media 10baseT mediaopt full-duplex
                media 10baseT
        inet netmask 0xffffff80 broadcast

and my card is identified with

de0 at pci0 dev 12 function 0
de0: interrupting at irq 5
de0: DEC DE500-XA 21140 [10-100Mb/s] pass 1.1
de0: address 00:00:f8:01:08:20

The change to produce output which can be pasted must have been
entered into NetBSD sometime between the date of your sources and
the current sources (actually, I thought it was quite soon after
the "ifconfig -m" stuff went in initially).

No? ;-)
