Aha, that might explain it; the kernel probably thinks you have an 
external VMEbus RAM card.

The NetBSD installation instructions (the part describing hardware 
preparation) provide the fix:

MVME147 board, at the 147Bug prompt:

147Bug> mm fffe0764 ;l
fffe0764: xxxxxxxx? 0
fffe0768: xxxxxxxx? 0
fffe076c: xxxxxxxx? .

Writing 0 to those locations, as shown, should solve the problem.
