It looks pipe on vax is broken (at least on simh).

The following simple command also fails:
# gzip -c /netbsd | zcat > /dev/null
zcat: unknown compression format

"gunzip base.tgz && tar xpf base.tar" seems working, and
INSTALL kernel and GENERIC with options PIPE_SOCKETPAIR also work fine.

Compiling kern/sys_pipe.c with -O0 doesn't help.
