I presume you are talking about what happened after the install, not
some part of the install process?
The default number of inodes is actually fairly generous (usually),
although I have shot myself in the foot in that area!
What does 'df -ki' give for that filesystem?
A netbsd src/build tree seems to need ~1.5GB and ~150000 inodes.
A minimal i386 install on a 1GB disk has:
# df -ki
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity iused ifree %iused Mounted on
/dev/md0a 2363 1936 427 81% 41 21 66% /
mfs:8 207 36 160 18% 850 44 95% /dev
kernfs 1 1 0 100% 0 0 100% /kern
/dev/wd0a 856323 52071 761435 6% 4958 228000 2% /targetroot
So with the number of blocks/inode for the rooot filesystem you shouldn't
have any trouble.
