You'll need to build the libraries first.

cd /usr/NetBSD-current/src
nbmake-i386 obj do-distrib-dirs includes do-gnu-lib-libgcc do-lib-csu
nbmake-i386 do-lib-libc do-lib-libpthread do-lib do-gnu-lib

These make lines will do the intro part of a build, and should populate
the destdir with what you need.

Take care,
