The basic issues are

  7 isn't really out, and there aren't necessarily bulk builds for it,
  even though they'd be useful.

  finding things, and having the symlinks be perfect, is occasionally
  not quite right.

Looking on the ftp server, I see in pub/pkgsrc/packages/NetBSD/evbarm

7.2G    5.1_2011Q3
7.7G    5.1_2012Q1
10G     6.0_2012Q4
8.2G    6.0_2013Q4
7.6G    6.0_2014Q1

none of which is 7, or wicked recent.   In general, what I do when not
finding what I'm looking for is to move up in the path to find a dir
that's there and then look around.

There is a notion of having a README file to point to builds that have
been done by non-developers or on machines that don't meet the security
guidelines for official packages.  If you have any pointers to such
builds let me know and I'd be happy to drop a README in the evbarm dir
on the ftp server.
