Sounds like maybe my config.sh would be useful after all.
An install_files.list like:
/ 0755 root wheel tar from /base.tar.gz
/ 0755 root wheel tar from /comp.tar.gz
/ 0755 root wheel tar from /man.tar.gz
/ 0755 root wheel tar from /misc.tar.gz
/ 0755 root wheel tar from /text.tar.gz
/ 0755 root wheel tar from /games.tar.gz
/ 0755 root wheel tar from `test -s /etc/group || echo /etc.tar.gz`
Would find say $CONFIGS/NetBSD/1.1/sparc/base.tar.gz, unpack it under
$DESTDIR/ and record the md5 checksum in $DESTDIR/etc/config_archives,
so that it would not be unpacked more than once.
Note that /etc.tar.gz would only be unpacked if $DESTDIR/etc/group did
not yet exist. Note that you'll need config-sh-1.06 or later.

I know this doesn't help for installing a single machine... but
I just add the following to $CONFIGS/$SITE/NetBSD/install_files.list
/etc/localtime 0775 root wheel symlink -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/Australia/Victoria
