How early on is this? Before the first NetBSD copyright message?
On cat's machines you sometimes get something like that (dies before doing
anything at all) because objcopy has corrupted the a.out version of the
kernel. Take a close look at the objdump -h output for both netbsd and
netbsd.aout: pay particular attention to where the bss segment is placed.
