This has recently (well, last few months max) started happening in the
installer when trying to setup binary packages.

I get with nightly netbsd 7 201501110540Z amd64 from nyftp:

     Status: Command failed
    Command: pkg_add
     Hit enter to continue
pkg_add: Can't process
/7.0_BETA/All/pkgin*: Host not found
pkg_add: no pkg found for '
4/7.0_BETA/All/pkgin', sorry.
pkg_add: 1 package addition failed

Networking is fine (ipv4 and ipv6), can install everything else from
that host fine, eg source packages and sets. So somehow globbing on
ftp seems broken, possibly only with some web servers.

However it is ok using, so it is maybe http server
specific - maybe a bozohttpd issue?
