This is a very strange error; if this error message is from v1.2.7,
then it means that the "rml" framework failed to select a component
properly. That should not happen, because there is a single rml
component that should always be available for selection (oob).

Can you send all the information listed here:

I will say that it's unlikely that anyone has tested on NetBSD; so
there might be some kind of glitch that has not yet been diagnosed.

FWIW, I don't know why it doesn't find the BSD nm. We use stock
