Could you repeat the whole installation process with a build of HEAD 
development branch?

Daily builds are available here:
http://nyftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-daily/HEAD/ under somedate/amiga directory

Just grab most recent one and try it again (with mini root image included 
there, it _won't_ work correctly with older). 

I vaguely remember these problems you describing were fixed at some point, but 
perhaps the fixes are not included in 6.x.

Besides, regarding missing utilities on installation ISO, the only real problem 
is missing correct loadbsd version (we're going to fix it). I'm sure this 
loadbsd version is OK for the HEAD:
