NetBSD  9.99.98 NetBSD 9.99.98 (GENERIC64) #0: Sat Jul  9 11:44:57 UTC 2022 evbarm

Using the sysinst installation path on evbarm-aarch64 fails when extracting the sets:

gzip: /evbarm-aarch64/binary/sets/base.tar.xz: not in gzip format

Image NetBSD-9.99.98-evbarm-aarch64-install.img to a USB stick, boot the image from UEFI on a SolidRun Honeycomb LX2K.  Get pretty far down the installation path onto an NVME gumstick until this happens.
Probably need to build gzip with the right options.
