You need to do ktrace command (ie, ktrace apt-get foo) and then run ktruss
on the ktrace.out that's produced. I don't think it's compiled with
debugging symbols, so the core file probably isn't much use.

I did patch apt, mostly with stuff from the filk patches in order to get
it to believe it was on a Debian system. By the looks of it, though, that
wasn't one of the files I patched. I've stuck my source at
http://www.srcf.ucam.org/~mjg59/debian-netbsd/apt/ if you want to give
that a go. I'll try rebuilding it myself now.
