Long-time cu user here. NetBSD replaced the GNU Taylor UUCP cu
with one of its own, and not surprisingly it's a repeat of
the alpha-quality 'BSD gzip' problems all over again...

Aside from using minicom/lrzsz, the original 'and still the best' cu is
available from $PKGSRC/net/uucp

It's a fact of life that you need pkgsrc to get around problems in
NetBSD's base now.. :/
