If you've built UNPRIVED into a DESTDIR, you can use something like
the following to copy all the files under DESTDIR into / except for
those in ./etc and ./var, retaining the privileges:
# cd $DESTDIR
# ( cat etc/mtree/NetBSD.dist $MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX/usr/src/METALOG ) | \
sed -e "s,^.$DESTDIR,.,' | \
egrep -v '^./(etc|var)/' | \
nbpax -rwMvpe /
(change the path to the METALOG as appropriate)
Of course, your mileage may vary, use at your own risk, (...)
