You can:

  install a normal netbsd system and build packages

  install on another machine only "base.tgz" (and kernel) and not the
  rest, and install binary packages.  That might work, or mostly work,
  and you might need a few more sets.

As for 'external SDK', that would be "install some other OS and cross
build", but when you cross build for android or ios, you do that from a
system which is a full install.
