NetBSD has no problems with hme(4). At least I didn't see any on my U10.
NetBSD-current comes with ipf and pf from OpenBSD, so if you don't like
ipf 4.x that comes with NetBSD-2.0... If you are going with NetBSD-2.0
remember to update to the latest release-2.0 kernel due to a sparc64 VM
bug in 2.0.
