 False alarm.
 Before reporting this problem, I had a hard time to mount the iso
 image on my NetBSD machine.
 # vnconfig -vc vnd0 ~/NetBSD-6.1.3-macppc.iso
 /dev/rvnd0c: 310771712 bytes on NetBSD-6.1.3-macppc.iso
 # mount -v -t cd9660 /dev/vnd0a /mnt
 exec: mount_cd9660 /dev/vnd0a /mnt
 mount_cd9660: /dev/vnd0a on /mnt: Invalid argument
 # mount -v -t hfs /dev/vnd0a /mnt
 exec: mount_hfs /dev/vnd0a /mnt
 mount_hfs: /dev/vnd0a on /mnt: Operation not permitted
 So, I did a quick check by mounting the iso image on Windows, and
 totally forgot the existence of symbolic links. How stupid I am!
 It turns out that I have to use the 'rump' option on NetBSD. Should I
 report this as a problem, or I actually did it in a wrong way?
 # mount -v -t cd9660 -o rump ~/NetBSD-6.1.3-macppc.iso /mnt
 exec: rump_cd9660 -o rump /root/NetBSD-6.1.3-macppc.iso /mnt
 /root/NetBSD-6.1.3-macppc.iso on /mnt type puffs|p2k|cd9660

 async 0)
 As your test, those three binary sets are indeed extractable. The
 subject to this problem report is a false alarm.
 I will try to boot the machine from CD-ROM later, and see if I can
 reproduce the installation problem.
