(e.g., are there tools to view at least mpt status from NetBSD?)

There's kern/26825 against the parallel scsi version of the adapter. While Debian seems to do fine with them in raid 1 mode, I had to replace all the mpts in the NetBSD machines with ami megaraid cards.

Unless you want to work on said PR, raidframe might be a better bet.
