=> I guess that you should contact some NetBSD developpers to try
to find a work-around for 1.6.1.
Few people here use NetBSD but your post seems to suggest that
people not willing/able to use NetBSD-current should use
FreeBSD, Solaris or Linux for instance right now and later give 
NetBSD 1.6.2 or 1.7 a try.
