   I have 2 i386-PCs running diskless NetBSD-1.0 for a while.
   When I build a new kernel, sometimes I have different
   strange effects:
   1. Some of the object files have length 0 -> linker complains.
   2. The kernel binary contains zeroed-out Pages.
   A second try works in most cases.

It sounds like you're using soft mounts.  If so, don't do that.  Soft
NFS mounts are not reliable.
