More z50 adventures: The Xircom CE3 PCMCIA card comes online in NetBSD 7, at 100/full even (no link in later releases, irrespective of media configuration).
dhcpcd assigns an IPv4 address ... which subsequently gets lost as soon as it tries IPv6 configuration? Doesn't happen with the NE2000 card. So I switched to a static IPv4-only setup.
No errors, even now that I'm unpacking pkgsrc to an nfs mount as a stress test...
