Several .iso images for ports of NetBSD 4.0 RC1 are missing from the netbsd-4-0-RC1 200709011431Z build on the ftp server.
(Note: Individual directories with release files exist for these ports. The thing missing are the .iso files.)
1. Go to ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-daily/netbsd-4-0-RC1/200709011431Z/ and look at the directories.
2. Now go to ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-daily/netbsd-4-0-RC1/200709011431Z/iso/ and compare.
Result: The following ports are present as directories, but not at .iso images:
Expected: That these should be included as pre-built .iso files as well (even though most of them will not be bootable).
Most likely course of action to fix this would be to make sure that either:
a) the missing archs are included in a new 4.0 RC1 build,
b) the missing archs are included in the RC2 build.
(I do not have the time or resouces to look at each individual port to see why it was not included.)
