That is great! Thanks!

indeed, since user need to be aware of a caveat: All $NetBSD$ tags
appear to be wrong. They have the value as of the checkin of each
version of each file, not the checkout, so they are always 1 version
behind. (I checked this on src/Makefile which shows this in cvs

#       $NetBSD: Makefile,v 1.274 2009/09/04 17:21:33 pooka Exp $

and this in the git version:

#       $NetBSD: Makefile,v 1.273 2009/08/30 01:49:42 dyoung Exp $

but the edits regarding "do-sys-rump-dev-lib" are actually in it.)

(There has been a very heated discussion among GIT people why keyword
expansion is supposed to be evil. They are not going to be convinced to
implement it. I am very annoyed by that.)
