When installing NetBSD/sparc i found that the bootloader doesn't support FFSv2,
so the sysinst should not provide that option when creating hard disk slices.
Run NetBSD/sparc installation and select FFSv2. You won't be able to boot.
Disable FFSv2 at the installation for NetBSD/sparc (and probably also for 
other archs that don't support it)
