finally I've found the problem:
It is the bug fixed in src/sys/compat/linux/common/linux_file.c 1.61->1.62
(pread/pwrite in Linux was translated into normal read/write in NetBSD,
 causing data to be written at the wrong location)
This bug seems to affect only one single file, and only when this file has
to be created, so there's an easy workaround by copying a known good version
there before the real installation process.

I've updated the package in pkgsrc and it works fine on my computer both
under 1.6.2_RC3 and current from Dec 7. As usual, if you have any problems,
please report them via send-pr.
