I don't think 'scp' understands C-shell-style globbing (w/braces,etc.).
I used something like:

  $ scp -p buildhost:'/path/to/{sets/text.tgz,kernel/netbsd-CUSTOM.gz}' .

It prompted for the password and then I got:

  scp: /path/to/{sets/text.tgz,kernel/netbsd-CUSTOM.gz}: No such file or directory

(It would be nice if it did so I wouldn't have to repeat common parts
of a long path.)
