     eew        Enable or disabled early warning EOM behaviour.  Count is set
                to nonzero to enable, zero to disable.

Try to set it before you backup something:

mt -f /dev/nrst0 eew 1

Btw, this is IMHO not pkgsrc related. It's a netbsd problem.
Feel free to redirect it to current-users.
