Ok, now it's booting (Yeah!) partially (no!). Here's what I get with the
stock 1.3.2 kernel:
>> NetBSD/vax boot [980808 18:03] <<
: netbsd
boot: client IP address:
boot: client name: vax76
root addr= path=/var/export/vax/root

Here's what I get with the netbsd kernel from subzero:
//some chopping//
NetBSD 1.3G (GENERIC) #760: Fri Aug 28 23:47:43 CEST 1998

VAXstation 3100/m76

Using 151 buffers containing 618496 bytes of memory.

ptelen fault in system space cetera for a few lines then...
?24 UNXINT 00BDF281 040A0000 054

Is this a hardware problem? The test kernel netbsd.test also fails but
not quite the same way due to a memory error, primary cache status:
1228<BCHIT,DPERR,INTR,REFRESH>, secondary cache status:
ffe1<TPE,DPE,MISS,ENABLE> three times, then a panic: ptelen fault in
system space: addr 0 pc 0, syncing disks... done
