>Description:
There are bugs during the "stable" release installation on adm64 machine using bsdinstall from dvd1.iso making it impossible to install the system -  "Error while extracting base.txz: Can't set user=0/group=0 for var/emptyCan'r update time for var/empty".

Please add "sysinstall" next to the "shell" and "live cd" selection dialog at installation startup :-) Replacing sysinstall with bsdinstall is a linux-style mistake... if you want to create an alternative, make it an option :-)
>How-To-Repeat:
1. bsdinstall starts
2. partitioning goes well
3. packages selection and exctraction goes well
4. error message shows up "Error while extracting base.txz: Can't set user=0/group=0 for var/emptyCan'r update time for var/empty"

 Then bsdinstall asks if I want to restart or exit the installation.

>Fix:
Fix the  "Error while extracting base.txz: Can't set user=0/group=0 for var/emptyCan'r update time for var/empty" problem.
