I didn't know there was an offset problem with NetBSD 1.5. Looking at
the NetBSD-current tree, I see no patches related to RVM offsets either.

As far as the patches in the tree, it looks like patch-aa doesn't even
apply to the used tree anymore, filcon is part of the liblwp package.
Patch-ab is interesting, we should probably test for the ncurses.h
header using autoconf rather than using ifdefs on a per platform basis.
It looks like patch-ac already got applied to our tree. Hmm, and the
version that is being built (coda-5.3.5) is already over a year old.
