Well, I just made a "vax780" specific kernel config file and built
a kernel and booted it with simh (vax780)

It seems to be happy with my netbsd 2.0.2 shared libraries. My nfs root
is from the 2.0.2 distribution.
oddly, the nfs kernel procs are gone. no doubt they got sucked into
some internal kernel threads or something (I'm ignorant - I stepped away
from netbsd around 2.0)
I'll go read the PR.
