I, for my part, think it is sick to use bash as /bin/sh like linux does.
That /bin/sh on NetBSD doesn't do "tab" has a reason: bloat prevention.
You may consider /bin/sh more then a script interpreter, then an
interactive shell. If you need tab completion on NetBSD, install bash or
tcsh use the csh or ksh that comes with NetBSD. I think the default
config of ksh was recently changed to support tab out of the box. On 1.6
you need
bind ^I=complete
to get the NetBSD ksh "bash compatible".
