 I also thought about the 'half a raid set' ...
 It is also possibly to do an install (on i386/amd64) leaving a 64 sector
 gap for the RF header before the netbsd partition.
 And then fill in the RF header and patch the disklabel to match.
 Teaching sysinst the exact format of that RF area is probably not hard!
