Just to be clear a "-current" kernel or a "current kernel". I've been 
trying to track the 1.5 release which forked of from the mainline a couple 
of weeks ago and this particular breakage is in the netbsd-1-5 branch of 
the source. 1.5E sounds like a -current kernel since I believe the tag on 
the 1.5 branch is _ALPHA2 at the moment.

One of the issues with -current vs 1.5 is the ELF support and I'm trying to 
avoid mixups in the binary format as they are quite a headache to debug!
