Well, I just built a custom kernel and no errors :)

There is a good doc at about upgrading to -current,
which also applies to 2.0_BETA (you just have to make sure you checkout the
correct branch). 
Try to get binary snapshots (you can also try to network
install NetBSD 2.0_BETA, which also worked fine for me). Anyway, I didn't want
to build the world (not even cross compiling), so I extracted those binary
snapshots as the doc at said :)
