You should have been asked for the sets you want to install, the X sets
are not included by default, and the evbarm install handles the kernel
set special.

Pinebook Pro should be non-ACPI/non-RPi mode so it should have populated
the dtb directory and efi/boot on the FAT partition and extracted /netbsd
on the ffs partition. What was missing after your install?

Side note: the full evbarm sysinst support is still work in progress
and I have no idea how to deal with installboot and u-boot yet (working
plan so far: try to match hw.model against some list and offer to download
the proper u-boot binary pkg).
