I have installed X and with OpenBox and successfully gotten X to start up.  However, the only thing that is not functioning is the type5 sun keyboard.  Every time I hit a key, it crashes the X server.  The keyboard works fine on the console, but never with X.  I tried replacing it with a ps/2 german keyboard and mouse using a ps/2 to usb adapter (my Ultra 60 has a usb pci card) and NetBSD sees the usb mouse in parallel with the sun mouse in X fine, but the keyboard won't work. I wonder if it has anything to do with the following from dmesg?
wskbd1 at ukbd0 mux 1
wskbd1: connecting to wsdisplay1
Is wsdisplay1 not the screen that the X server displays to?

With the X11 Keyboard configuration as follows:

Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Keyboard0"
        Driver      "kbd"
        Option      "XkbRules" "sun"
        Option      "XkbModel" "type5_unix"
        Option      "XkbLayout" "us"
        Option      "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"

run startx and press any key at any time.
